i know it’s only day 10, out of i don’t know how many, but i haven’t killed him…yet. yay for me!

i had to clip one flower off the first week, and was worried the rain we got a few days ago would drown him, but he’s doing really well. actually, i think he may have grown an inch since taking this photo yesterday. seriously.

he looks healthy and green and strong. i’m going to bed in hopes to dream of blts, gazpacho, and hot tomato jam.

is this what it’s like to have a child? probably not in the least huh?

i realize i haven’t posted in quite some time. honestly, i have been working and busy, which is good, but leaves little time to blog. well, last week i was working on a tv show and talking with one of my co-workers about my love of tomatoes, and how i’d love to eventually jar them for the off season. much to my surprise, the next time i worked with him he brought me a tomato plant.

this is very exciting! i planted him today, and placed him in my parking spot on the roof of my garage where i live in downtown los angeles.

i will continue to post on his progress, and hopefully down the line be able to post my first recipe with tomatoes from the plant. i am thinking about names for the plant, and open to suggestions. tom seems too obvious. dave jr. has a ring to it, since it was a dave that gave me the plant. mostly just hoping i don’t kill him.
