Tomato Plantin Time?

Call me crazy but I'm already thinking about planting tomatoes!
Because The Cowboy bought me this . . .

 Now I'm asking why myself.  Because I'll be planting on our patio which gets the afternoon sun and they'll burn up.  

But I smiled and said thank you.  

All the while wishin'  I could take a pic like this later in the summer
This is my kitchen window from a few summers ago.  We got the chance to live for a few years in an old farm house.  I loved that 
little house.  

And the garden I was able to grow.    It was a good year for a garden.  

My very smart son told me how to cut my tomato plants back in July and keep watering them.  We had fresh tomatoes for Thanksgiving.  He's so smart.  

Doubt I'll be able to duplicate that here on the patio but it's worth a try!  I may end up having to hang them on the front porch.  Won't that look lovely.  

Or maybe The Cowboy has finally decided to agree to move and he has a plan for moving before summer!  

I can only hope!  

Oh and if you happen to have any tips on porch gardens let me know!

Before I go I want to thank everyone for the prayers and sweet comments and messages today.  
Surgery went well.  He was indeed a little trooper.  2 months recovery and he should be back to Karate!
Home laying on the couch with the turtle that went through surgery too.  His t.v. remote, the quilt I made for last surgery.  And the kitten he took wrapped in his baby blanket.  He swaddled it! 

He's showing off the blue tape they put on his hand.  He loved that tape.    

He asked the doctor to save the metal hardware they were taking out.  He plans to display it on the mantle!

We're all smiles and Happy.  Thanks for the prayers.

Yay - we are so happy to see the little trooper at home, looking happy and resting!
Homegrown tomatoes are the bestest!

Here in south Florida it is now too late to plant tomatoes, not that I will try again. They were devoured by pests. this winter has been so wet that I think they would have gone to rot anyway. That upside-down planter looks like an interesting project for next winter.

So glad the surgery is over and he's on his way to recovery...
we did the Topsy one summer and it worked great...good luck...and it will be gorgeous on your front porch...when the pretty tomatoes start appearing, you'll have to stand guard 'cause they will be tempting to take one...:)
