on cold, dull and wet days like today. On the plot that means red and yellow flowers, especially sunflowers, and vegetables such as tomatoes.
Among the knee-high sunflowers Musicbox that I grew last year were these sunny ones.
The red tomato Gardener’s Delight is probably the most popular, and well-known, of all varieties. I’ll be growing some from seed along with the yellow variety Golden Sunrise, both of which I generally do well with. One of the best plot pleasures has to be picking and eating a ripe sun-warmed tomato.
The last tomato on the windowsill Tiny Tim plant didn’t ripen in time for Christmas or New Year but I may well eat it later today.
This year I’ll be growing at least a couple of these and hope to do even better than I did with this one.
Happy dreaming, and have a good week!
