Library Bag: The $64 Tomato

I'm trying to keep myself in check by reading this humorous garden book, The $64 Tomato by William Alexander. I highly recommend this fun read, for both a how-to and how-not-to-do kitchen gardens.

Elise is adorable! And so big!

I'll have to show the book to hubby - he's resisted the idea of a kitchen garden for ages because he thinks it will be too expensive!

Don't know about the book but that little tomato in the purple dress sure is cute.

I think I heard an interview with the author on NPR a while back, and then promptly forgot about the book, so thanks for the reminder! Great photo by the way.

Hey! That's the way I garden! Spend $128 on tomato plants, topsoil, and fertilizer ... and finally produce ... 2 tomatoes!

Meredith-
Elise is just the sweetest thing. The two of you are going to have some wonderful times planting $64.00 tomatoes as she gets older! What a beauty!
