The weather in Auckland right now reminds me of monsoon season in Borneo around this time last year. Only this is a bit colder. It’s supposed to be summer. This week we’ve had intense bits of rain followed by intense sun. No one seems to be enjoying it except the garden.
I ate my first garden strawberry this week (we planted 2 varieties) and I’m getting excited at the prospect of our tomatoes. They’re a still green at the moment, but you can tell they’re going to be all different.
To get more interest out of the 3-drawer filing cabinet planter, we’ve planted 3 tomato plants.
- Beefsteak – a deep red, large (one of the largest kinds), uneven shaped tomato.
- Sweet 100 – a prolific red cherry tomato.
- Yellow Plum – a bright yellow egg shaped tomato.
