throughout the latest 2-day spring deluge, i was confined to the back porch starting seeds both for my own garden use, plus a tray or two to promote and sell heirloom tomatoes… they are by far the best tasting tomatoes, plus you can save seeds and they will easily acclimate to your garden climate, wherever you may be.( except maybe alaska)
i have found that the Brandywine does very well thro’ hot dry summers here in ga.
they keep putting out fruit, under these conditions; they aren’t those oversize over-sensitive hybrids dropping flowers in the night. i pass that info along, as well as let folks taste their great flavor. propaganda? of course! i love to try new “old” varieties, some do well here and some just don’t like the prolonged periods of high-pressure weather, with its dry heat for weeks on end…throughout my long-time gardens here in the south, Brandywine is queen.
every seed, of any kind requires an attitude of faith…that the tiny new sprouts will grow up and give plenty of food…that nascent ideas will manifest in your life, if well cultivated… that a small bit of help given, in turn will grow and blossom and come back to you, often many times over.
we must nurture each other as we care for those tiny seeds.
our caring for man (woman) kind is what we are here for; it is our highest purpose.
our network of friends sustain us, but to feel a greater union with all living beings
requires an open loving soul. we welcome every small beginning that can transform
the world, we tend to and heal mother earth, as well as each other….
so, while you plant and visualize your blooming world, know that your blessings and
connections in this life will thrive as does each little leap of faith that is contained within.
as the Beatles said: (oowee that really dates me!) “ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE.”
It’s nice to hear you’re just as crazy about heirloom tomatoes as I am. We don’t grow hybrids anymore. And we finally got our seed order in and are awaiting the miracle.
