Last week, one of my co-workers was giving away extra plants from his garden, so I have acquired two Mortgage Lifter tomato plants and one green pepper plant. I had wanted to plant them last weekend, but I did not get to it (i.e. was too lazy to go to the store and buy everything needed). My mission today is to transplant all of these little plants. Because I’m apartment bound, they will be container plants all the way.
Last year I had a tomato plant, but I planted it too late in the season. By the time they were all ripening, it was too cold outside. I brought the plant inside, but all the tomatoes were red on the outside but yellow and hard inside – yuck.
I’m hoping I will have better luck this year, because I’m really looking forward to these giant 2.5 pound tomatoes. I’m thinking I’ll have to get some basil to plant as well this year. Tomato sandwiches…tomato salads…bruschetta…I can’t wait!
