It's Tomato Heaven upstairs

Not long now and there will be some ripe tomatoes on some of the five tomato plants I have growing on my balcony! Counting back, probably Early Girl will be red and ready around April 15.

So far the plants remain pest free, the only difficulty is watering. Every morning, I've got to run upstairs and downstairs tying a string around a hose by a downstairs spigot, hauling it 20 feet up over the balcony wall and then turning it on to water. Soon I will have to do that twice a day to keep the tomatoes from drying out.

It's going to be worth it.
