Friday night we spent time as a family in the gardens. It was awesome. The smell of tomato plants gets me every year. They are my all-time favorite. I could pick cherry tomatoes all day, and have spent many many days doing it- especially since Farmer Dan draws the line there. Just not his thing, picking cherry tomatoes or okra. While we were there, Farmer Dan was ‘weaving’ all the stakes- he takes twine and weaves it around the plants and stakes to hold the tomatoes upright, you do it again several times as they grow taller. Keeps the plant healthy and makes harvesting easier. We had to order pizza from Nelly’s the local Italian restaurant in order to do this. Seriously that is how busy things are. It’s fine with us, too- cause their pizza is just great and we had a fabulous time in the tomatoes.
