Something very interesting happened here at MiddleBar that everyone keeps telling me to write about.
A few months ago, I was talking to my friend Elizabeth, a Master Gardner, about wishing I had the space for a tomato garden. Someone suggested the rooftop, but then we'd have to involve the landlord blah, blah, blah, blah. Our friend Diana told us to simply get some pots and randomly toss some seeds in there. I never got the chance...
1 week later!!! I was headed out back to take out the trash, when I saw a fledgling tomato vine growing out of a 2x4 inch crack in the ground. Not kidding. A crack. Seriously, no grass, dirt, anything. Just a vine, growing out of a crack in the pavement. I was flabbergasted.
It was June 10th when the vine sprung up from a crack in the pavement, and flopped itself down by the trash can out back. Today, this crazy plant is healthy and bountiful. How? I'm not sure. There's seriously no soil out there. But she's beautiful and totally magical.
