|Stan's a man of his word|
In late May I posted about whether plant protectors give tomato plants a head start in cool, spring weather. In that posting I interviewed Stan Purwin, who has a plot at West Side Community Gardens, a part of Columbia Gardeners, Inc. Stan showed how his Walls ‘O Water work and said, “I’ll be picking tomatoes by the Fourth of July. Come back on the Fourth, and you’ll see.”
Well, guess what I did July 3, at 7 a.m.—a day before the holiday? I met Stan at his garden to see whether he had started picking tomatoes.
