    Hey Ms. Meganne. Sounds like you put a lot of thought and planning into your container garden. Sorry to hear you were sick through the summer. We also had a very dry, hot July and August. In my case, it seemed to slow all the plants down. It never seems like water from the hose has anywhere near the same effect as a good rain. Green Zebra is one of the tomato varieties that I grew, as well. The previous year, they were the only tomatoes I had that produced any significant amount of fruit, so I figured they were a good bet. I also love their tangy, tasty flavour. I can't wait to get started with next year's tomatoes.

    Happy Sunday.

    Hey Ms. Meganne. When is your growing season in Missouri? Is your picture recent or from the summer? Your tomatoes look very full an healthy. What kind did you grow, and how did they do? Lot's of questions, I know...I'm just curious and interested.

    Congratulations on being farmer of the day. You've got a great mix of containers, and it looks like your plants are very healthy. In the picture, it also looks like you have some yard space. Do you see yourself putting in some bigger gardens at some point?
