my first tomato

my first tomato

One nice thing about living in LA is that it is perfect for gardening. I only have a balcony, but I was able to start a container garden. I am growing basil, parsley, thyme, rosemary, sage (2 kinds!), chives, green peppers, strawberries and tomatoes. I have never gardened before other than some experimentation for the Wildflower Meadow Glacier Robot way back in the day. I harvested my first tomato this week. It sat on my counter for 2 days because I wasn’t sure what to do with it… one tomato. Plus I was nervous. What if it tastes bad? I hate a mealy tomato.

After an especially hot marathon training run, I was feeling like I needed some salt and nutrients to replenish. I cut up my little tomato and ate it with some balsamic and a pinch of salt. Pow zoom, what a tomato. I can’t wait to harvest the other 5 tomato buddies that are on their way.

Speaking of tomatoes, I have a tendency to turn as red as one when I run. Today was an extremely hot 7 mile marathon training run. I tried out a running skirt and it was awesome. Who knew? No pickles and peanut butter today though. Please consider supporting my efforts by donating to AIDS Project LA in my behalf. I will definitely think of you when I cross the finish line tomato red after 26.2 miles of Honolulu heat.
