Tomatoes in January
I have had a very robust Roma tomato hang on into the cold weather and is loaded with green fruit. I took the plunge today and removed it from my front yard because it was crowding a Salvia Clevlandii "Winifred Gilman" and a Buddleia Davidvii "Black Knight".
Now I have a gaping hole and two plants looking shellshocked, spindly and exposed. They will fill out the space within a few weeks.
Designer and installer of edible landscapes, orchards and California Native Gardens, sometimes all three in the one garden. Originally from Ireland I now make my home in Los Angeles and have a 9 year old son, two Boxers, six hens, one cat, three goldfish, and one rabbit.
