Domestic Update: SPECIAL EDITION



We interrupt the old photos to bring you this special Domestic Update. In my continuing quest to become a Gentleman Farmer, I have achieved a major milestone in harvesting my first Ripe Tomatoes. I ask you, are they not lovely? Mrs. PJM will take part of the harvest to work tomorrow to try and sell at her underground farmer's market. How would you price such lovely, all natural, vine ripened, no pesticide beauties? Two for a dollar I say.

  1. Hey, who gave me the thumbs down. Those are lovely tomatoes. Plus, I posted two old pictures today, so you got your old pictures.

    Sometimes I wonder why I even bother with this blog.

  3. Maybe a fellow underground tomato seller who does not like the competition? Or a potential customer who thinks the price is too high …

  4. My guess is that almost anyone, even a Mexican Bandit, could have done it... probably out of jealousy over the B.O.N. thing.
    Nice tomatoes, BTW.

  5. Your price seems completly fair.
    Who is your seed source?

  6. Mab.,
    I got the seeds from the company I got the greenhouse kit from . . . cropking.com. These are the seeds used by commercial growers, and they make pretty tomatoes and are heavy producers. They taste a little better than grocery store tomatoes. I am going to go to Gurneys or Johny's seeds and get some heirloom seeds trying to get a more intense flavor. I am not satisfied being a little better than grocery store quality.

  8. The PJM tomatoes look great. I'm thinking salsa and how tasty it would be.

  9. Bill,
    My dream has been to have a salsa garden where I grow all the ingredients. Right now I have the tomatoes, jalapenos, which are ready. I have raised beds with garlic and onions. The cilantro I will grow in the greenhouse, and I have the seeds and hope to plant this week.

  10. The tomatoes look lovely. Have been away from the States for too long to comment on the price, but over here the similar looking yummy "ramato" tomatoes generally go for about E.2.50 a kg., which would be about $1.25 a pound. How 'bout cherry tomatoes?! So tasty!

  11. Star,
    I have some seeds for the little pear shaped yellow tomatoes. I am hoping they will be tasty. I also have seeds for the little green Mexican tomatoes that are in the husk. Can't wait to get those up.

  13. You bother with your blog because there are more out in blogland that like your posts than the (1) one particular person who didn't who is probably a very unhappy person and a coward to boot. That's why.

  16. I'm going to say $1.00 each. I guess it would depend on the size of them (no reference to size).
    They look almost good enough to eat

  17. Nice. Are those Celebrity or Better Boy variety? Some of the people around here grow Roma for their salsas.

  18. The tomatoes are a hybrid called "Trust"

    There is a chinese restaurant in the building my wife works in. They like to buy her black market vegetables. They call her the "Dolla Lady". They are always happy to see her and say, "Ooooo here comes the Dolla Lady"
