    No room to garden here. Lower part of the back yard floods when it rains, then sets up like concrete, but the grass grows well. Sooooo, I set out at least two large tomato plants in large pots by the edge of the deck every year. I've lost most of my gardening skills which is no loss because there are "farmer's markets" all over the place, but I still like to have a couple big plants going.

    BTW, those ones you're holding look just about perfect.

    Starter sets are just now showing up at Lowes. We can plant around March 15TH. I pot my starter sets and set them garden where I'll plant them. I cover them or bring them inside if we got a chance of frost. I can go in the ground before April. I plant three kinds. Celebrity, big boy and Roma. I have a pic from last year somewhere.Name:  SSPX0946.JPG

    We have a farmer's market near where I live and work. We get really nice summer harvest tomatoes. Nothing like the depth of flavor from a vine ripened home grown tomato. A bit of trivia - tomatoes are actually a berry and a member of the nightshade family but it is culinarily considered a vegetable.

    We've grown both the regular reds and also heirloom tomatoes. Some of the heirlooms are ugly as can be, but have an amazing flavor.

    Fresh tomatoes, fresh bread, white mayo, salt and pepper. An awesome combination.
    Most stereotypes come from how you treated the last person who didn't know you.

    Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    My wife says that I need to be honest here and even know it would be nice to say she grows these tomatoes in a little homemade Greenhouse built off the barn but that would not be completely the truth.

    She bought the tomatoes at our local Winn-Dixie for a dollar 49 pound. They are from Mexico.

    I cannot tell a lie and let you all think something different!

    Great post.

    I like to slice up vine ripe tomatoes with cucumbers, a Vadalia onion generously sprinkled with some vinegar pepper sauce.

    Good eats when saddled with fried okra and fried pork chops or chicken and corn bread...yum-yum!
