Thanks! I share kadesma's love of tomatoes, so I've done a lot of experiments with stuffing them!

I'm SO jealous that you can actually grow your own. I grew up with a garden, but now I'm in an apartment, so all I get is an herb-window-pot. What kind of tomatoes do you grow? Any of the weird colored heirlooms? Sounds like the season is looking better this year; I hear last year was kind of a mess with all the rain.

>>apartment

our youngest lives in Brooklyn, in a 3rd floor walk up.
the kitchen window is the access to the metal grated fire escape.

if they have a fire event, inside tomato season, they're toast. the fire escape landings/ladders are _loaded_ with container tomato plants....

Fresh tomatoes are absolutely worth it :)

Aren't you worried about your kid?

It's also rather inconsiderate. It would cause a problem for all the people in apartments above.

We have a greenhouse full of tomato plants that would so LOVE to go in the ground...unfortunately, with all the rain we've had (and another week of rain forecast for next week), we can't get the gardens rototilled. I'm so frustrated by all the rain. It's a good thing I don't have to go to an office to work--the laundry is drying very slowly (I don't use a dryer--that's a long story).

My favorite way to eat tomatoes, besides sliced on toast with mayo, salt, and pepper and a few slices of jalepeno pepper, is to take tomatoes, cube them, sprinkle with basalmic vinegar and olive oil, fresh basil, salt, pepper, and fresh mozarella cheese or feta (when I don't have moz). I can eat this every day for lunch in the summer...

There's nothing better than a home-grown tomato. We've had a lot of rain lately, but I can't wait for the weather to improve and the sun to shine so that I can plant our tomatoes. I always start with plants, not seeds, and I like to plant three varities: Big Boy, plum, and cherry.

Im in the same state. I agree July is about the time they will be ripe off the vine.

I live in an apartment as well. I use big pots and put one tomato plant per pot and they grow well like that! Tge patio is like 6 feet long but only 3 feet out so its a tight squeeze but its possible
