Finally, the seedlings arrived! Last fall I ordered these babies for shipment in April. I can’t wait to see what develops, I’m hoping for lots of pink, organic tomatoes. I’m all about color in the garden this year, as hinted at by the many photos of colorful tulips now blooming in the garden.
The seedlings arrived in a molded plastic container and seemed a tad bit wilted from their travels.
A bit of water and a sunny spot on the windowsill has perked them up considerably.
Speaking of tomatoes, I came across a small choice of heirloom tomatoes at a local Acme market. I’m guessing it is a Costoluto, although no name was given and they sold for $1.99/pound. Genuardi’s also sells heirloom tomatoes for $6.99/pound. In this single example, you can easily see how growing your own can help save a bit on the food bill.
In case you are wondering, heirloom tomatoes absolutely taste better than the average red tomato on sale in markets across the nation.
