I had grand & wonderful dreams of canning & pickling, stocking my freezer, and giving away overflowing baskets of fresh veggies to my friends. "I have way too many tomatoes," I'd say smugly. They'd hug me and we'd all trot away happy and a little healthier. I had visions of making homemade salsa using only fresh ingredients from my garden... until my peppers decided not to do anything and my onions and cilantro perished. I suppose I can still make that shitty mild kind you get at the Mexican restaurants. You know, the kind that's just mushed up tomatoes (and nothing else). Only I can't because my tomatoes refuse to turn red. Damn you tomatoes. I think I officially give up.... For now. Maybe I'll try a winter garden.
(The herbs... In happier times.)
