Reliving past glories. I guess there's nothing wrong with it. The tomato king is trying again.

Rodger Duncan tomatoes

Does he ever look happy!  He grew these tomatoes.  I don't remember the exact year and I don't know whether we ate them because he's holding onto them for dear life.  He tried last year to achieve this feat again and failed.  We poked fun at him.

This year it is time to try again.  He's growing tomatoes in Searcy Arkansas but his plan is to get out of that vacant lot where the deer (@#$!%!@# deer as he calls them) ate all his tomatoes before we could get them mature on the vine.  In fact the deer ate the plants too!

This year he found two fantastic (in his opinion) old red containers and placed the containers in the flower beds and he has carefully planted three plants in each one of the containers.  The tomato plants are  placed exactly in a triangle so that they will have ample room to grow.

We'll see.  No hair has been brought to the tomato plants yet but he probably hasn't had time.  Golf beckons and he has to go when it calls.  I must admit that I hope he is successful.  I'd love some fresh home-grown tomatoes.

The tomato stories from last year are below in case you care to catch up.  The picture above was several years ago and he was a pretty good-looking guy, wasn't he..........

Barbara:  I just love tomatoes as well.  About a year ago I did a blog post just going on and on about how much I loved tomatoes.  Maybe I should find the post, and re-work it.  Fresh tomatoes... Yum !

Godmother,

No, simply a compliment. As you have heard, I expect to have 10.3 million dollars deposited into my personal bank account, within the month, from a long lost relative, whom I never met, who left me a large sum at at the Bank of Nigeria. Mr Charles is so tiny minded that he would turn the Salvation Army into a massive spy agency in his fantasy view of the world.

Karen Anne, let's just revive all of our old tomato blogs and drool over what is coming very soon!  Fresh tomatoes!!

Nutsy, I knew you were up to something.  You think I'm going to fall for that old trick?  A Nigerian bank?  10.3 million?   Uh.....what's my cut in this deal?

Well, Ms. Barbara, I was leaning toward using Nutsy for bait.
