Nothing says I love you like a fresh, ripe from the vine tomato. Forget the diamonds, you can’t eat them. Not even Penzy’s spices are going to help.
If you been paying attention to Tammy the tomato’s travails this summer you know about about her challenging life in the ‘hood. If you’ve been trying to grow your own you probably noticed the effect this summers weather had on the local summer crops. And if you were lucky you managed to avoid a dose of “late blight” which devastated the tomato fields in the Northeast. It has been an interesting season.
But hey, hope springs eternal and the 2010and all their temptations will be arriving soon at a mailbox near you. There’s nothing quite like the new seed offerings to chase the winter blues. All those pornographic images of you can have in your own backyard.
For us at Blue Pike Farm we’re already in the 2010 mode. We’ve been planting garlic for next summers harvest, the Radicio and spinach are poking through and if the winter isn’t too brutal the Tuscan Kale and Spring harvest. I guess this means were going to continue with this grand urban growing experiment for another year.should be ready for
And while it seems like only 6 months ago that we had the May Open House (and by coincidence it’s only 6 months till the May 1, 2010 version) each morning seems fresh. Don’t you just love the symmetry of the seasonal cycles!
Just a couple a weeks left to visit us this season. Stop by.
