.I have been doing a lot of work on Dad's Tomato Garden Web Page getting ready for the 2010 tomato season. I want to be ready to help you all that I can. I am going to have several things mentioned about tomatoes from when you place them in the ground until you are eating a delicious home grown tomato sandwich.. And there will be no charge to you for this, just a Smile. Dad.

"Fruiting crops, including tomatoes, need full sun most of the day for good production of quality fruit. Good drainage is also important. In high to medium rainfall areas (more than 30 inches per year) work the soil into ridges and plant on the ridge or build raised beds 12 to 18 inches deep. Plan on setting out at least one cherry tomato and 4 to 6 large-fruited varieties depending on the number of fresh tomato lovers in your family. You'll need stakes or wire tomato cages to support the plants to keep the fruit off the ground where it would rot. To insure even and efficient watering, you will want to put in a drip or soaker hose system for watering. Finally, count on mulch to keep down the weeds.


I know that it is Saturday but we still have to go see Sara, Oreo and Misty, It will be Monday before we see them again. Here is the way to go Sara's Dog Training DAD.

Good Morning DAD... Your right about it being a good Saturday morning. Even though it is raining here and very dark it is good because Len came home from the hospital late yesterday afternoon. It was a bit earlier than I expected so I have a lot to do today but having him home is so much better than having him in the hospital with all those nasty germs. Plus I got to have my morning Sumatra with him and you.

I think next summer I will try to grow a few tomato plants following your advise. Last year I had one plant and grew it in a pot. Living in the northeast I may have to start a few weeks after you...but I really want to grow cherry tomatoes and some variety to make fried green tomotoes.

I agree with Mary and the Garfield link. I am definitely not a "pop" out of bed person. It was very cute and of course made me SMILE.

Have a wonderful weekend, see you on Monday.

...Sara's Mom

I was happy to see my mom left her comment at 8:17, not 3:30 am like yesterday! Hope that means she got some sleep last night.

I hope you and Mary have a good Sunday. See you on Monday!

Dear Dad and Ms. Mary:

Hope this weekend is treating you both well. I got teary-eyed reading that link! Lots of wisdom there. My beloved mom said, "It doesn't get easier", and sometimes I believe she was right; but if you say "It gets better", I think I'll take that instead. ;)

Love to you both from Jamaka and family, including my sweet Sam, who thanks you for sharing his message with your readers!
