Yesterday I decided it may finally be safe to plant a tomato so I dug out Frankenpot! *cue creepy music* A few years ago this large pot somehow got broken. I drilled rows of matching holes along the broken edges and fastened it back together with copper wire. It looks kind of cool, I think.

The tomato was given to me by my heirloom vegetables consultant. It's a variety called 'Aker's West Virginia' and is supposed to bear in 85 days. At this point that seems like ages from now. In the interim I'll be getting tomatoes from the farmers' market--in fact, I am already! They don't have the full flavor of the ones grown outdoors but they will eventually and I really look forward to that!
