We’ve packed away the “winter” clothes here in South Florida, and this also means that it is time for the first tomato harvest. We have some big tomato types and some grape and cherry tomatoes, but I prefer the small types since there’s a greater chance that we get to eat them before the pests in the garden.
The tomatoes are grown from tomatoes we’ve eaten. Once in a blue moon we splurge on organic tomatoes, and when we do, we always save the seeds for growing our own. We are currently at the end of the dry season in South Florida (it starts around November), but the dry season has been so wet this year that we’ve only watered the garden a handful of times.
Yesterday we made a salad, and today we’re making an Indian meal with homegrown tomatoes.
Have you started your vegetable garden this year? If so, what are you growing?
