Zelda had so desperately hoped to break into season 9 of Project Runway with her modern tomato jumpsuit. She designed it for the urban vegetable...possibly a sleek green zucchini attending a soup mixer, or a lanky leek wanting to impress at the local salad bar.
Pity Michael Kors and Nina Garcia didn't see it in the same light.
I was pretty happy to have harvested about 9 pounds of Amish Paste tomatoes from the four survivor plants. It's a little discouraging to think of how many more I would have had from the twenty others that were eaten, but I'm glad that I at least have some to harvest!
I also harvested another 3 pounds of green peppers and a good pound of red peppers. There is a boatload of basil out there for the Tornado to help pick after supper. My family may very well be sick of pesto by next summer! :)
