Home Grown Tomatoes

It’s February all of a sudden!  Even though here in Texas it feels like spring, I know we have a lot of cold, windy, wet weather ahead.  But even so, we are starting to think about “home grown tomatoes!”  If we don’t get started early, the temperature of late spring climbs so fast that the vines quit setting fruit and all we have is greenery – no tomatoes!

If we get ready indoors, and protect the little gals into the last frosts in March, we can get some growth going into the warmer spring days, and produce fruit before the heat shuts us down.  It’s worth it because of the flavor, so different from the store bought tomato.  It’s like Guy Clark says,

“Just two things that money can’t buy: that’s true love and home-grown tomatoes!”
