You can grow your own food. And we can help!


Take a look at these tomatoes. They are growing in my garden but I didn't plant them.  They just started popping up in my raised bed.  The February cold snap killed the others but this one must be pretty hardy to have survived three nights of frost. I'm curious as to how the seeds were sown.   They most likely came from the compost pile.  Looks like a Better Boy tomato plant I grew last year that was enormous in size.  They are beauties and I'm not complaining!

Tomatoes are happy to grow every which way, rightside up, upside down, left and right.
