I started growing tomatoes in grammar school, in a small flowerbed that was MINE. I’ve spent the last 20+ years of my life working on tomato-growth mastery, plus engaging in debates on hybrid vs. heirloom, summer salad vs. caprese – the world’s big problems. I then found the website of my current tomato-plant dealer, Laurel, who is far more obsessed than I am (which made me feel both excited & normal, so that worked out.) After last year’s near crop failure (which my friends wisely do not bring up) I’ve built a raised bed, bought night crawlers, & have been anxiously awaiting my shipment of organically grown heirloom tomato plants, which arrived today. I am so excited I can hardly stand myself. Freely willing to admit that I’m super-annoying today.
In other May 4th news, we moved into our G-Free Foodie product shipping space today and will launch our website tomorrow. Exciting & nerve-racking stuff to be certain, but slightly overshadowed by my tomato shipment arrival. Excellent chance that I will not sleep at all tonight and that I will be in near-flip out status tomorrow morning, which ought to make a good Cinco de Mayo 2010 story for my friends at a Catina tomorrow night.
Also, my husband arrived home with a completely delicious gluten-free cake with “Congratulations on the Website” written on it, which means I will be eating G-Free dark chocolate cake that I didn’t bake while I’m up all night, a totally awesome surprise.
I’m really, really proud of our site, I hope you all love it & that you’ll love our products too. And I hope these damn tomatoes grow.
