Toad in the Hole
April 02, 2007
Due to technical weirdnesses, this photo is stuck sideways. We do not, I repeat, do not have a Popeil Pocket Gravity Inturvinator on the porch. Not even a cheap knock-off version.
Strawberries in November are all very well, but a truly disorganized gardener can pick tomatoes off the front porch in March. This is a weed in the Christmas... OK, the Labor Day cactus. I took the shot Sunday, April 1, and we'd already eaten a couple of the tomatoes from it a few days ago. They were tangy but not sour or unripe-tasting, and better than even those pretty-good organic cherry tomatoes that get shipped up from Mexico year-round.Posted at April 2, 2007 06:49 AM
Yay for volunteer tomatoes! I've had some come up here in Massachusetts, too, sometimes. They never show up before July, though.
