Big Mama

Enjoyed my first Big Mama today, and found it to be much more tasty than the first Roma.

Based on how things look in the garden, a Brandy Boy should be next on the menu.

My Garden - Week 10

It has been a long, hot, dry week, and my tomatoes look like they're loving it. It's a jungle out there!

My Garden - Week 8

Wow, week 8 already. Where did the time go? Unfortunately, I'm noticing that the lower leaves are beginning to turn yellow. I've done some research on the causes for this, and I believe in my particular case, it may be due to over watering. I've backed off a bit on how much I give them, so we'll see what that does going forward.
