If you’re not going to get up early and get to the farmer’s market when it first opens, you might as well not go because you are truly missing out! Everybody knows the early bird gets the worm! This morning we (by we I mean I pulled my kids out of bed with threats of shoveling bark all day if they didn’t get up and brush their teeth pronto) showed up about 10 minutes prior to opening and came home with these tomato plants: 1 yellow taxi, 1 box car willie and 1 something “wine.”
You can never have enough tomato plants, even if you already have about 60 growing in the garden. None of my tomato plants are this big yet anyway, so maybe I will get a 2-3 week start when I harvest these. It’s not like zucchini; you can never have enough tomatoes. Zucchini is fun for maybe 2 weeks. Then it’s all down hill from there. You have to start looking for clever ways to unload the stuff. Like last year’s ever popular night drop commando operation. Tying bags of the crap to various neighbors front doors while it was still dark out… That was fun.
