Green Tomatoes

Summer's harbinger, green tomatoes. I took the lazy route this year, potting soil in four large pots and nursery plants to go in them. They are getting big, about golfball sized, still plenty hard and green. I like to gently touch the leaves, the pugent tomato plant smell will linger for an hour or more. My father and his brother always had a "first tomato" competition, my dad always thought it funny to "plant" a store-bought tomato on his plant- my Uncle Fred was not amused. The forth of July is only nine days away, it really is too early to have a ripe tomato in this climate, but I may just have a chance this year...

I told the girls about this ... they vetoed the idea of trying this out on the neighbors.
