June 25, 2012


Tomato update: I now have 68 young tomatoes developing on the deck.  And I said to hell with it and planted a few squash and cucumber plants – everything is on sale now, so I’m not risking a lot.  If tomatoes can grow in pots, then why the hell can’t squash.  Just because it’s never worked before……[we had squash and pumpkins on the roof in Brooklyn, but we stopped gardening up there after the hurricane of 85]

The herbs are flourishing – lots of basil.  The end of the week I’ll trim it all back and do some more pesto for the freezer. It’s always helpful to have that on hand. I don’t think I’ll need to do tomato sauce, however. Still lots of jars in the basement from previous years. I do think I’ll try to put up some oven  dried tomatoes this year – great for those winter soups and braises. [We will need to do vegetable juice however.]

And I’ll say one thing about “farming” on the deck – it’s a hell of a lot less back breaking than planting in the ground….
