"Gardens are a form of autobiography."
Pictured above are my prized heirloom tomatoes, the result of my first attempt at potted fruit/vegetable gardening. Each morning before I go to work, I inspect both plants with concern and care, looking for insect trouble, yellowing/dried out foilage, and of course, the status of the tomatoes themselves. I've got a vested interest in my plants doing well, as hopefully soon I can harvest a couple and make myself an heirloom tomato salad (just a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a tiny pinch of salt to play against the sweetness). In my case, gardening is not a form of autobiography...it's a cookbook!
