Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Short-lived Joy



This morning when watering I spotted a rosy tomato. Wow! My first one! Rutgers won the race.

Closer inspection revealed that it suffers from blossom end rot. Oh well, the next one can't be long to wait for.

UGH! I had to pull 3 of my plants due to blossom end rot this year. The tomatoes were starting to rot in their tiny green stage and I figured with 25 other tomato plants to work with, I could reuse the space for other things. Made me sad to rip them out, though! I feel your pain!

Sorry I cannot say I approve of the
way you grow Tom's in the U,S. All
that top growth should not be there,
it is weak and taking the goodness
from the bottom,sorry STEWART
