Well did that title get your attention. Yes sir, aggressive gardener Bishop Decker in his quest to have the first home grown tomatoes on the block is guilty! He set two tender, young and innocent tomato plants out a week ago taking a big chance…. Alas, Celebrity and Big Boy succumbed yesterday.
They were observed early yesterday morning with a light coating of frost. They were bravely standing tall and erect but as the frost melted the injury became apparent and they passed quietly. They did not die totally in vain. They have become an important part of the compost pile so that their brief and tragic life can aid others. May they rest in mulch!
