I can't believe how big the tomatoes are already. Did you start the plants inside?

I made salsa with my garden toms (except for the ones eaten right off of the vine).

That is a great idea, salsa

As we have 2 tomato plants so we will be getting a few...we are thinking of buying more as we love them, can never have too many

Do you have lots of veggies growing too Chops?

No veggies growing right now. Almost winter here.

The only veggies I grew this last summer were tomatoes, peppers and herbs. I did have lots of flowers however. I'm not sure what I will grow next spring.

If I pack up now and head out to the airport, by the time I get there, your garden should be ready for me to pig out.

I got lots of cherry tomatoes, but they had to ripen on the pulled up vines in my basement since they were not yet ripe when the frost hit. I only had one small bell pepper plant, and only had three red peppers, but they were ever so good. The herbs were great, but I didn't save them from the frost. Oops.
