Green tomatoes, photo by Rosemary West © 2009My little "patio tomato" plant is progressing nicely. It sits in a pot at the edge of the patio, of course. I also have a pair of larger plants in another part of the garden that are just starting to develop fruit.

Home-grown tomatoes are easy and economical. And they taste so much better than any you will find in the supermarket that it can be hard to believe they are related.

It's not too late to get started. Plants are still available in local nurseries for less than $1.50 each. For a special treat, try the yellow pear variety. They look nice in salads, and are good enough to eat as snacks. If you have room for more than one plant, it can be fun and rewarding to experiment with one of the "heirloom" varieties.
