Oh I'm so excited! It's tomato time again! (yeah I know I need a hobby! oh yeah, I have my camera!)
This is one of our "Mister Stripey" tomatoes from last year.
But it is time to start looking for this years varieties.
A couple weeks ago we had to search all the nurseries to find only common tomato varieties,
but they are out in full force now and I have lost count of how many we have.
Of course, one of our favorites is still around from last year. It is a big mass of vines
that seems to be very happy and produced fruit all year even through our mild frosts here.
(It was nestled against the wall under our living room window and, luckily for him, they didn't
seem to have anything like insulation in the 70s when the homes in this area were built. :-)
