Garden Update

It’s tomato season! Despite never actually forgetting about my heirloom tomato plants, I have been extremely patchy with watering them. In defiance of my neglect, the plants have been producing tasty tomatoes.

The patchy watering did result in some blossom end rot at the beginning of the fruiting season. According to the internet, these black patches on the bottoms of the tomatoes come from a calcium deficiency, which is actually just a symptom of inconsistent watering. So this tomato plague was completely my fault. Go figure.

Luckily with some consistent watering and a daily reminder to water my poor tomato plants, the blossom end rot went away. Now I’m just on a mission to make my own mozzarella to go with my basil and tomatoes!

  1. Those look truly tasty, Sheep! If you *do* wind up making your own mozzarella please let me know; I would love to be the photographer to document ~that~.
