TBD on Ning

Our "farmers market" is open, and I went there this morning.  The couple from down around Carbondale was there, and they had tomatoes from their garden.  Heaven on earth!!!  I bought a big bag full of tomatoes.  I just love tomatoes!  Not the hydroponic kind, though.  But real garden-grown tomatoes are the bee's knees!  I had tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches for supper.

Here's a link as an obscure reference to Liza Minnelli, a beautiful tomato:


Here's tomato imagery:

I bought a thousand red worms for about forty bucks last year and instead of buying a worm condo, made my own with a plastic tub and lid that we drilled small holes into. The bedding is a combo of shredded junk mail and garden dirt and you want it to be damp but not wet. I use coffee grinds and banana peels and tea bags because they don't reek to high heaven the way that onions would. The amount of worms doubles about every six months. Have also used bits of frozen fish guts from ice fishing in the winter to grow my veggies. I bury them at least 10 in deep under whatever I'm trying to grow. Everyone I tell that to says that an animal will dig it up on them if they try it. In all the years that I've done that, it's never happened to me and we have raccoons, ect around here.

Besides the obvious answer, where, pray tell, does one obtain "worm poop"?

Boosts the plant's immune system. Plus we use worm poop and miracle grow. I have my own composter. Stuff like that.

Aspirin?  Hmmm.  I guess it IS a miracle drug!

We have well over two dozen tomato plants and are planning on selling them for two bucks a pound when the y come in. All sorts of people have been asking us if we plan on selling them this year since they tasted so good last year. It takes fo evah in Maine for the tomatoes to get here. The real garden ones but they're worth the wait. I can't plant them til the first week of June. One of my plants is just starting to flower. My not so secret for growing monster tomatoes is an aspirin in the watering can every few weeks.

I thought Oregon was a major tomato-producing State.

It had been too cold for tomatoes in Oregon and they are pea size.

I hope that she does not eat like that at a fine restaurant.
