Growing backyard vegetables in Southern California
Saturday, July 24, 2010
I have to admit that the upside down tomato-thing really works. Those are REAL tomatoes on that plant, but then again that's Celebrity for you. I really believe that variety will grow anywhere and in almost anything.
I harvested some zucchini, a Marvel Stripe (that I forgot I had sown), Paul Robeson and Rutgers. The little pepper is Lipstick, which goes great in Tuna Salad.
We recently spent the day with friends at the OC Fair in Costa Mesa and had a great time. No trip to the fair would be complete without a visit to the Centennial Farm. So while the kids were busy riding the Vomitator and the Spine Cracker, I made my way amongst the raised beds of produce. Oh, and let's not forget the gigantic pigs and their very recent piglets.
