|Pictured is myself giving my potatoes a drink after planting|
them. My dog is not impressed, as you can clearly see.
I'm not exactly the green thumb type, but eating store bought tomatoes is downright depressing. Farmer's markets are cool, but if you want the good tomatoes, I mean the really good stuff, you gotta wait in line. There's this farmer's market in Granville Island where a grower from Kelowna has a stand and people literally fight over his heirloom tomatoes. I like tomatoes as much as the next person, but I'm not going to stay and line and risk a fight. I gotta stay pretty, you know what I mean?
See all those pots behind me in the photo above? All tomatoes, except for the one at the far right which is a flowering plant from the Philippines. It rarely flowers due to the fact our climate here sucks. But that's another story. We're talking about tomatoes.
|Each one of these will turn into a tomato.|
|I am reserving this plant for smoothie duty.|
|This plant will bear Roma tomatoes, which are perfect for sauce.|
|I found these during a recent cleaning of my pantry. They|
were a little overgrown, so there's nothing you can do now
except stick them in a pot and wait.
|The start of a delicious relationship.|
|Each one of these little growths will turn into a separate plant.|
So before you plant these little babies, cut them
In a couple weeks, the potatoes will sprout. Water them once in the morning and once in the evening. They're not like tomatoes, so they like rain. In early October, the plant will die. When they do, that's your cue to dig them up. That's it.
|Good night. See you in October.|
