San Marzano Tomatoes

While the rest of the US is full of ripe, red, juicy, delicious tomatoes, here on the northern coast of California, we gardeners (at least this gardener) continue to wait, watch, and coddle our tomatoes (please) to grow. Edible, before the autumn cold sets in.

This does not mean that tomatoes are missing. On the contrary, our inland farmers bring many heirloom tomatoes to our local farmers market , and I buy many of them.

Being the fastidious gardener that I am, I kept these plants in the greenhouse in hopes that the warm weather inside would give me ripe tomatoes this summer.

Then the white fly appeared. the cloud

I do not use pesticides, not even so-called organic pesticides.

So I took the tomatoes outside to the garden. Where they sit now in their warm black pots. Waste does not grow. Sigh.

We have just learned that this July in the North Coast XIX. that it has been the foggiest since the end of the century.

You might think that after 18 years I would stop growing tomatoes here. I think the part of my life before I moved here, the part when I grew up and lived in the warm Sacramento Valley, the part when the tomatoes are ripe and red and juicy and delicious at the end of June, that part is not going to be easy. to give up .

Suggestions are welcome.
