I admit it. I have some OCD coursing through my veins. I come by it naturally. When I came across people who sold dozens of varieties of tomatoes, it was hard for me to resist buying one of every single variety. I held myself back at about 45 varieties and 50 plants, or something like that.
I live in a city neighborhood, so I don't have a lot of extra space. I have turned half of my driveway into a garden by using so many pots. I also live on a corner, which means everyone can see into my yard, no matter where I am.
So, a couple of weeks ago, as I was wrapping up planting my pots, a car slowed down next to my yard. I thought it was going to be someone asking directions to someone's house I didn't know.
"Hey! You be selling some of them plants?"
I actually burst out laughing and said no, but it did strike a chord in me.
How fun would that be to actually grow and sell plants next year? I have always dreamed of creating decorative pots to sell.
Perhaps this year I will just settle for a roadside stand of my huge crop of tomatoes.
