Well I volunteer with Food not Bombs,  we pick up or grow organic produce. One or two  members will make a meal.  On Sunday 'S we go to Asbury Park and have a share.  Everything is free to any one who comes.  There is a website,  Food not Bombs , Asbury Park,  NJ. This is a vegan group... Nancy

Really enjoyed your essay, @sunday46. I can almost taste the fresh tomatoes. Now all I need is a little basil, mozzarella, and olive oil on top of my imagination Smiley Happy

 

Would love to see some pictures of your garden!

Summer Writing About Tomatoes?

Happy Summer to my Community,

It has been a while since I have written about my life this summer. I am still

in recovery mode two years after a 7 1/2 hr. Posterial Spinal Surgery. Getting 

better gradually , yet in physical therapy , and still under the care of my doctor.

 

To keep my mind off of Health I am trying to have a better “raised garden” and

with the help of my younger son  I’ll enjoy fresh vegetables ( will share with family and neighbors). One would be surprised how many vegetables can be planted in these  gardens. I have several and don’t have to bend over or to dig in the ground.

 

 I enjoy the cluster vine tomatoes, my are they delicious! I learned how to grow my own and will have lots of them. I also am growing Roma tomatoes. Try this for growing your own: slice a tomatoe crosswise , put soil in a container, place the thin slice of tomatoe there, cover with soil, water and place in a sunny window.

In about 7-10 days your “tomatoe” slice will sprout. Wow! You are on your way to

saving money and enjoying fresh vine ripe TOMATOES for all kinds of dishes.

 

Hope this hint that I discovered will help you while gardening.

Have a wonderful summer to write about gardening with Tomatoes.

 

Enjoy!
