Tomato Picking


We finally have enough tomatoes to pick, collect in a container and bring in the house! Our previous attempts at tomatoes (and battling 27 various diseases that afflict tomatoes in Hawaii) had resulted in getting one pathetic little tomato every every week or so.  The boy was super excited to pick red and nearly-red ones and put in his “bucket” though it was a bit of over kill.


This was by far the best part of my day.  And then I went to the office and just sorta went downhill from there! image

Things I love: justice in all forms; flowers; locally grown food; cloth-diapering; breastfeeding; feminist theory; outdoor play; beaches; wine; Divine interventions; 4-H and coffee. Things I loathe: racism; homophobia; toxic crap; misogyny; litterbugs; the zombie apocalypse and pitbull-haters. My formal education is in sociology, gender studies, and public policy. I'm also a Lactation Educator; 4-H Youth Development coordinator a Certified Master Gardener and a graduate of a Permaculture Design Course. I've been blogging for several years on dozens of topics- everything from women's health to breed-specific legislation. But the thing I like to write about most is my gardening, food adventures and my kids. So there you have it. Please be kind. Thanks.

  1. I have five HUGE tomato plants, and so far have a total of two small green tomatoes growing. It’s very distressing, and I understand your frustration. Last year I had tons of tomatoes growing by this time. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
