Attack of the Giant Tomato
This is a picture of a friend's Beef Steak Tomato from a season or two ago... I kept a little of her arm in the picture to help show its large-ness.
I asked her one time if she had ever added up the cost of growing it to compare with the cost of buying one at the store. She replied, "I don't want to even think about it." I understood why. One thing for sure, the taste would not compare well at all. There's nothing as delicious as that which is grown with love.
She hasn't grown any tomatoes since then. I think its because there has been too much of 'life's downers' going on and she hasn't felt like dealing with a garden.
