I had a plan all laid out for lunchtime. I had planned on quickly eating and then starting dinner I know, I was so organized and everything! I was planning on making a marinara sauce using ingredients I had grown myself. Yeah, yeah, I gardened a bit this year. This was my first foray into the world of green-thumedness. I have been moderately successful. Anyshway, I had tomatoes, basil and parsley that I planned to pick and use.
I flitted out the back doors, across the deck and down to the back where I keep my little plants. WHAT THE HELL?! Someone stole my tomatoes. Who does that? Seriously! I had several ripe tomatoes that I had scouted out yesterday evening and they were gone! Oh, of course they left the unripe ones, probably so they can come back to steal them next week! Its not even like I live on a busy, highly traveled street either. In fact, where my tomato plants are is towards the end of a very short dead end street. Directly across from my plants is a very nosey neighbor, so I'm hoping she saw the culprit. Dude! I'm super pissed.
Soooo, I had to make due with some canned tomatoes. Not that I wasn't going to supplement my tomatoes with the canned stuff, but still! UGH!
I actually tried REALLY REALLY hard this year to grow stuff. Growing things is generally not what I do best, but this year was different!
I have mint and basil and tomatoes, and flowers, and pumpkins (I wasn't getting any closer than this folks. Please, I was in heels) and lettuce and beautifully blooming Crape Myrtles and I even sprouted two avocado pits, so I have avocado plants growing too!
Watch your back, tomato thief. I'll get you when you least expect it!!!
