It's been a good year for tomatoes. I like how this time of year you start looking at the garden with a calculating eye, wondering how much longer the basil will last, if the cucumbers are REALLY finished or if you might (oh please!) get a few more, and if you thin the carrots will you get some plumper ones in a few weeks, or just fewer? Of course the garden never really finishes...the soil is percolating quietly all winter and your brain is humming along planning which heirloom lettuce seeds to order even as you are stringing lights on the christmas tree!
