Eye Candy for Gardeners

This is me.  Bragging on my awesome husband, who has set out to grow tomatoes in Texas.  What's the big deal?  You've grown tomatoes in Texas?  Well, we haven't. And not too many have.  And we're pretty proud.  Isn't she beautiful??!!!!

Earlier in the year, my Hoe-slingin' super gardener, invested in multiple varieties of tomatoes that were bred and/or touted to grow well i our area, where the sun is hot, and the rain will either wash you away or not come at all.  We have lots of different tomato plants.  I'm sure you'll get to see them later in the summer, but this one is the most impressive - an early producer, and i thought i'd share.  

Incidentally, i have no idea what kind of tomato it is, but if you're interested, i'll try to find out.

We already have one beautiful red tomato on our counter, waiting to be devoured, and it smells SO good.

O.k., enough bragging for now.

Over and out.


  1. That is stupendeous! As a wannna-be green thumb, I'm totally jealous. There is no reason I shouldn't be able to do that in my own garden in Western New York. And yet, my garden remains a pitiful pile of dirt with more weeds than actual plants. Very impressive!

  2. In my neck of the woods, it's all sand. We've tried growing tomatoes, green peppers, and cucumbers to no avail. Raised beds, good dirt hauled in... doesn't matter. Rumor has it that our land was the victim of extensive share-cropping. I'm starting to think it's just plain worn out. But boy, oh boy, do we love a garden tomato. :)


What do you think about that?
