Tomatoes in October
Several weeks ago, tiny volunteer tomato seedlings emerged in a couple of swc's where plants were grown over the summer, and now are pretty big plants with little green fruit growing. These in the picture above are Rutgers, and although there's no chance that they'll reach maturity before cold weather arrives - fried green tomatoes are highly likely.
I've contemplated growing a plant under lights over the winter indoors, but after thinking about electricity costs to do so - a person has to ask themselves if a few good tomatoes is worth it. Hmm.....Probably not.
In other news, work continues on the proverbial planter each evening after work. At least an hour's worth is accomplished before it starts to get dark outside, and the weekend simply can't get here fast enough. Words simply can't describe how special this planter is gonna be to me, and when you all see it, it's probably going to tug at your heart strings. Whew....it'll definitely be one of a kind! :)
