High Mowing San Marzanos

August…the month of tomatoes.

Aunt TomatoThe process of planting the tiny seed, nurturing the plant, and then finally seeing tomatoes ripen is always miraculous to me.  It doesn’t matter how many tomatoes I grow.

A beautiful Monday miracle.

    And you should know!

    I planted nothing outside this year while I learned where the sun went (and doesn’t). High summer assessment: I have excellent sun for growing things. I have bidens alba (Spanish needle) from Florida growing out in a pot, and another long planter of lemongrass growing thick and happy. Talking with an herbalist from north of Presque Isle, she told me of a vineyard up there that had produced prize-winning champagnes from its inception, and whose entire crops were bespoke before they even grew. Sadly, the vineyard is currently untended as its owners were old and fell ill. Aroostook County wines. See, climate change isn’t all bad!
