yay summer! yay tomatoes!


One of my favorite things about summer are the fresh vegetables. And there's nothing can compare to homegrown tomatoes.
I recently planted a few tomato plants of my own in my lovely backyard in Brooklyn. It makes me happy to look out my window and see my very own tomato plants basking in the sunshine. And to keep the tomatoes company I added a few pepper plants, basil, cilantro and red freckled lettuce. And that's about all that my mini-backyard garden could fit. By the end of summer I'll have my own salad that I picked myself. Now I just have to figure out how to grow olive oil and some balsamic vinegar.

Basil's actually a really good companion plant for tomato...
