Surviving the cataclysm, one veggie at a time

Whatever is the opposite of a green thumb, I have it. This year, though, in preparation for the cataclysm, I decided to learn how to grow my own veggies, on my little porch. This weekend I had the first chance to enjoy the fruits of my labor.

My first tomato:

Comparison shopping: store bought vs. home grown:

My first chili pepper, the stunningly hot firecracker piquin:

If I can do this, anyone can.

If we all can do this, maybe we’ll survive the cataclysm yet.

    What amazed me most is that my little home grown tomato actually tasted like a tomato. Do you even remember what they taste like? Nothing like those red styrofoam things they sell at the grocery store.
