I am so proud of the tomatoes that we have harvested from our first victory garden, and with the abundance of basil, arugula, and cilantro we can start enjoying more fresh salads and salsa! My honey and I are not big tomato fans, but when we ate these Romas they were so flavorful. Even with our drought, we have been quite fortunate with the abundance of herbs and vegetables we have produced with so little skill. Our plans for next year are much more ambitious, and I hope to have a window herb garden in my south facing office window throughout the winter. It has been such a treat knowing that part of our meals have consisted of vegetables that we grew without pesticides or fertilizer aside from our composted kitchen scraps and yard waste. Much love to those gracious friends for sacrificing a good portion of their yard.
