Growing backyard vegetables in Southern California

There's nothing quite like the payoff. With the price of heirloom tomatoes going for $5.99 a pound in the local market, I was thrilled to see several giants appear on my new favorite tomato plant: Brandy Boy.
So here's what a $10 tomato looks like. The first picture is what it looked liked on the vine next to several others of equal or larger size. The second picture is what it looked like perched on a 4x4 fence post. That one plant has produced numerous giants already, and there's lots more to come.
