Hearty Produce


Planting only two in pots on the patio, they get full sun most of the day and lots of water.  Adding some Parsley and a few Marigolds to the perimeters of the huge pots was totally my idea as well as their new location.  

Last year the pots were located on the South side of the house where most people say there is typically more sun.  Not in our yard.  The treeline protected them and continues to protect us from the mid-day sun.  Last year we had a few.
This year we have a lot...:)

Yes, if you look closely they are almost heart shaped.  This variety, known as Oxheart, proved to be a success for us.  I've been enjoying my tomato sandwiches daily!  There's nothing like a fresh tomato sandwich with a hearty tomato on hearty panini bread smothered in mayo!

Yay! Those look delicious, JP! Enjoy! Down here, I just ripped out my determinate tomato plants. Hopefully the indeterminate Big Boys will give it another shot before too long. The plants look awful, but they produced a great harvest. Now we will have cucumbers coming out of our ears, and the eggplant and squash and bell peppers are still producing. And figs? Never have had so many! Guess it was the very cold winter we had down here. But now it is too hot to go out and pick anything! (Sigh) Linda@Wetcreek Blog

Is there anything finer than a fresh tomato sandwich? We grow those tomatoes too, they are awesome, and pretty! and the pink red hues are gorgeous.

YUM, a fresh tomato sandwich sounds seriously delicious right now.
We have some tomato plants that got put in pretty late and we only have a few buds on them right now. I do have a pepper plant on my deck but it doesn't seem to be real thrilled with all the sun it's been getting.
