In keeping with the theme of "hard times", I didn't buy heirloom tomatoes this year. I just went to Big Lots and bought two packets of seeds, one cherry tomatoes and one cayenne peppers. I potted them in the window and now I have potted a lucky few on the balcony. One of the tomatoes died (so I thought) so I planted another one next to it. A week later, it came back to life and now there are two rivals in the same pot. Resurrection. Better than Angels and Demons.
