Fooling Around With Tomatoes and Marigolds

So, I went away for weeks.

And the marigolds I planted to keep the tomatoes safe from bugs went a little wild. OK, very wild! Look at that tomato below, making a break for it!

But now I’m intrigued. Will all this lovely scented foliage keep the frost away as well as it kept the bugs off? Will it mean some later tomatoes out in the field? With such excuses, I can amuse myself for weeks. However, it might just be worth it. This picking of tomatoes, even without frost, is unlike any that I picked in the summer. When I cook these tomatoes, they com out in a sweet paste, with no water at all. It is most unusual.

What will the later ones be like?


Hopefully mysterious and strange! I’ll keep you posted.
