Tasty Toms in Neglect Horror Exclusive!

These are my self sown, un-fed, un-watered, drought tolerant tomatoes and they taste delicious!
I’ve not tended them in any way and they are still producing a bountiful crop.

I grew toms in the greenhouse last year- which is where they must have seeded from, but considering the extremely high temperatures the greenhouse must have endured this summer- without any shading either- it just proves how adaptable nature can be!

I just found your blog and it made me laugh when I read that you call your husband He Who Doesn't Dig. My husband was the same way when I started my garden plot three years ago. He didn't want to have anything to do with gardening. But now he loves it! He enjoys growing the tomatoes, herbs and garlic to cook with.

How wonderful that you grew sweet peas for your weeding. They look beautiful!

Those are my kind of plants! Is Tasty Toms the name?

How nice of those tomatoes to be so forgiving ;)

My husband was also a "He who does not dig" and now has become "Farmer Arlen". Although, he has a real gift for thinking a weed is something worth keeping. He's responsible for most of the weed seeds scattered throughout our neighborhood.

Tasty tom is just a name I made up! Picked another 7 this morning- small but juicy!
