Spring is still months away, but you have to start somewhere, sometime.
I don't think we are going to plant as many tomatoes as we did last year.  The deals were so great on the plant starts that we got a little bigger than we could comfortably handle.  That's not complaining, just being realistic.  I have to give thanks to the Old Man for getting out there and getting it all harvested.
No, that's not my tractor.  I live in a two bedroom apartment on a busy street in the city.  I've got a small backyard that I have turned into a garden. 
This was taken before the tomatoes took over early last summer. 
I had originally planned on just growing herbs and some lettuce, but the tomatoes had to go somewhere.  I think I may  just do one or two plants this year so that I can get a variety going.  Of course, I may not have to go out and buy any tomato plants with all the seeds that are in the boxes from last year.  We will see.

  1. Tomatoes do so well here - compared to Texas! We have a small yard and I think I'll put in 2 tomato plants. When we moved into this house in August, there was a lone tomato plant in the back yard that wasn't doing very well. I started watering it and it kept growing and producing little yellow delicious tomatoes until we had a freeze! It was so nice to go out and pick tomatoes for our salads every day!
