In other news, namely garden news, I got a small batch of snow peas I blanched and froze along with the snow peas from our CSA box. That should last us 3 or 4 stir frys, at least!
My tomato plant is enormous...I mean, its as tall as I am! Its a Brandywine, but I didn't know they grew that big! I discovered a problem, though. Just when I was excited to get a few blooms...they would drop off! Reading in my Rodale's Organic Gardening book, I found that shaking the tomato might prevent this from happening.
I had head about this originally on Apartment Therapy's Re-Nest website, where they talked about the old wives tale of Beating Your Tomato With a Broom.
So I've been giving it a try! I never liked tomatoes much anyways, so I get a certain satisfaction from smacking them around.
And you know what?
Since I started I haven't seen any more blossoms drop! No fruit yet...but hopefully if I keep up the regular beating I will!
