When I go into the garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tomato Seedlings Under Grow Light
“There ain’t nothin’ in this world better than home grown tomatoes…” Songwriter, Guy Clark, has just about said it all for the devoted (obsessed, really) tomato gardener. Let skeptics laugh at tomato enthusiasts with grow lights taking up good counter space in January and February. Those warm, winter soups and stews, filling the soul with earthy goodness, will be worth all the ridicule. Take for granted the abundance of sweet goodness awaiting the garden browser in June. Vitamin C on the vine-so divine! Adkinson, Homestead, Early Girl, Juliet, Sweet Million, Super Sweet 100, Improved Whopper – grow my little pretties; planting time is just around the corner. Count yourself lucky if you know tomato gardeners willing to share their bounty of tomato devotion (obsession). Sing it again, Guy.
