Only three tomato plants
I am sick of tomatoes. I want my counter back, I have enough processed to keep me in sauce and crushed tomatoes
til next summer.
My neighbors avoid me, don't answer the door when I try to palm off more tomatoes on them.
Can't leave for the weekend away much less a summer vacation..tomatoes need picking and processing, plants need weekly staking and tying up and supplemental waterings from the rainbuckets.
Who'd have thought three darn plants could rule my whole
I thought buying indeterminate varieties would give me a small but steady couple of tomatoes for salads and sandwiches.
Last storm, preceded by shooter marble-sized hail, blew down all the tomatoes,peppers and eggplant.
So I left them where they tipped over and the darn things just turn their stalks up and grow toward the sun with more blossoms, more baby veggies.
I swear, the only thing I fed the soil with was a light dose of 10-10-10 and about a half-gallon of pulverized peanut shells tilled into one 8' row.
Maybe I overdid the peanutshell thing.
Last time I used them, I got dinnerplate sized spinach leaves.
