    In the desert we have tomatoes in December!

    I took these pictures today of my tomatoes, grown in pots with lots of miracle-grow. They will be ripe for Christmas! Jalapeno peppers too. Our California desert growing season is in the winter, summers are too hot.

    Mmmmm, looking tasty. I have been watching the bad flooding on the California coast this week, hope it isn't a concern where you are.

    We haven't gotten wet in a while, I wish we'd get rain. I think we've had less than 2" of rain so far this year.

    What a beautiful crop....and your plants look wonderfully healthy. We have a lot of tomatoes growing....but they got a bit battered by a freak storm the other day...should probably have some ready for Christmas.

    Here in New England, I'll have to wait until August to have a "real" tomato. The stores have what I call plastic ones, pretty but not very tasty and hard.
