A year ago St. Patrick's Day weekend we put some tomato plants in our earth boxes. We had a decent crop spread out over midsummer to late autumn. The vines began to shrivel by the beginning of December and we left them to die off. We never got around to digging out the old plants and preparing the soil for new plants, so missed the tomato sale this year. I thought today since I was working in the yard I would at least cut back all the old vines, and to my surprise, the spring rabbit left us tomatoes instead of eggs! I'm thinking a chopped tomato, fresh mozzarella and basil salad tomorrow. Yum!
