#3 Love and Homegrown Tomatoes

January 11, 2011

Goal number three for this year’s list is to grow enough tomatoes for a whole year, and learn how to can and freeze them so that we will have homegrown tomatoes through the winter.

I know, I know.  I failed to meet this goal last year, but I learned a lot that I think will be useful in trying again, and we did grow some very delicious tomatoes last summer.  Best of all, I rediscovered my all-time, favorite co-worker in the garden.

Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “Where we love is home.” And that’s the best place to grow tomatoes.

True love and homegrown tomatoes – you can’t buy ’em. But if you find them in the garden, be sure to nurture them!
