The taste of a tomato still warm from the plant brings summer to life for me. After the season I most likely will not eat another tomato until next season. I don't know why they even bother to grow greenhouse tomatoes during the winter.
As I think about it, if I can grow fantastic tomatoes in my greenhouse, why the hell can commercial growers not grow a comparable tomato in the winter? The answer must be: money, of course.
Another batch of dill pickles is underway in the crock, and, I also have four olive cuttings planted in just plain old builder's sand.
So far the cuttings look fine, while the sand should definitely eliminate fungus gnats, as there is no organic matter to sustain them.
