Back on

First I catch my wife checking my blog as though there should be any reason to expect a post .

Then an elderly Armenian (generally spealing,the best and most prolific home gardeners in Pasadena!) couple pulls their car over to ask me how I had such success with my tomatoes.

So I have been given the kick in the pants that I need to get back to blogging. I will start with a picture ok my last tomatoes of the season. They will be fried in short order of course.

And testing.

Harvest time begins

This is my favorite time as the produce begins to roll in but still before the plants start dying. Nothing like a big pile of vegies to make all the work seem worth it.

This tomato is just shy of one pound - hardly a record setter - but it

makes my kitchen knife look like a paring knife!

Summer's looking good

Summer's looking good

This was last week. Brandywines even! The Cadillac of tomatoes whose

flavor is as good as they say, but can be finicky to grow. Even more

have set and they are getting big! Lots of caprese salad to be eaten

this summer.
