Aren't Quivus and Zalaazil cute inspecting these free tomato plants? This is a rare treat because they kill all species from the kingdom Plantae, as Quivus quickly demonstrated moments after the photo was taken.
I scored 36 free tomato plants on Wool St yesterday, thanks to a tip from fellow Compactor, John Perry. I snagged them on the way down the hill from a dog walk, left 6 in the community garden on Cortland, and stashed the rest behind my client's stairs for a day. Hauling them home on my bike was tricky. The effort was aided by a passing neighbor who took 6 more off my hands! On my street, Raul's going to pass a few down the street, leaving me with about 18 plants. Still too many.
Can't wait to call my dad to get the skinny on tomato cultivation! They smell so good!
