Tomato Envy Vol. 2

“Dear PoP,

Hells yes you should envy my awesome tomatoes. In the earthbox below are Audrey III and Audrey IV; the pic was taken a couple of weeks ago. Each is over 6 feet tall and vining out of control! One is an heirloom variety called “Matt’s Wild Cherry” and the other is a Juliet tomato. Off to the right in the photo is a Golden patio “dwarf”. It collapsed under the weight of its tomatoes this past weekend. I have tied it back up; if it dies, there will be fried green tomatoes! The other photo is a handful of cherry tomatoes picked just this morning. So good.”

Awesome! If anyone else has a great garden, vegetable or flower or simply a prized tomato, shoot me a photo in an email.
