The ugly (Black Krim) tomatoes are starting to ripen. I can't wait! This is the really exciting part of the growing season, where everything comes ready. There are lots of different types of cucumbers growing, and our first yellow squash, and the mystery tomato. I've got the seeds from the grape-like riesenstraubes (there were two types -- small grape, and large cherry, mixed in the seed packets by accident -- I don't know which is actually riesenstraube!) already sitting in water soaking so they can come clean and get stored for next year. I have to collect seeds so I can grow more plants next year. That's the coolest thing about growing heirloom plants.
Okay, so I really enjoy this. But its cool and fun and something really productive I can do. I can't wait until I can have a huge garden some year!!Posted by Deb Atwood at August 26, 2002 10:17 PM | TrackBack
