Feels Like Summer

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Seems pretty hot around here, 88 degrees this afternoon, and the forecast is in the 90's for tomorrow...

But I have been reluctant to plant my tomato plants before the mesquite trees have leafed out (the old timers' way of knowing that there will be no more frosts)

BUT, yesterday I spotted a few, just a few fronds of leaflets on the mesquite in my backyard, and it surely seems warm enough to support tomatoes...

How I love the taste of fresh homegrown tomatoes, all by themselves, and especially in salsa and pico de gallo... Oh, yum!
