I’m facing a seriously critical conundrum. One that will impact the entirety of my upcoming summer. And I’m not sure what to do.
Do I plant tomatoes or bag it?
To some of you this may seem like the most unsubstantial predicament to be in. You probably thinking, Heidi, it’s time to call off the search, you’ve found that molehill and made the mountain.
But it isn’t that easy.
I’ve grown tomatoes every year, for years. But the past few have seen a steady downward spiral of yield and just plain growth. My tomato crop at the end of summer has turned into a total bummer crop instead of my oh so wishful bumper crop.
Last year I swore that this would be the year I took some time off from my tomato planting endeavors. And then when I received a bounty of freshly grown tomatoes on the vine from a new company I’m working with, I realized it would be perfectly fine if my garden went tomatoe-less this year. I can get a #bumpercropinabox (Ha! #hashtagJimmyFallon) and still satisfy my summer ‘mater-eating obsession.
