Tomato Paranoia and Zuke' Regret

Category: Garden in the Ghetto | Posted: Mon Aug 06, 2007 9:38 am

The cherry tomatoes are just starting to turn red. I've almost killed that poor plant a dozen times, but luckily she came through. There's 40 tomatoes so far and she's still going.
Now that it seems all right, I'm constantly worrying that someone will steal my fruit! It started when my Grandpa told me that some kids snuck into his backyard and took 15 peaches off his tree. Although it was a hilarious story, I checked all my plants for evidence of theft as soon as I got home.
My partner, Rob, laughed openly as I theorized that everyone in the apartment complex is after our garden. It didn't seem like that far of a stretch, considering a neighbor's boyfriend stole our wallets and cellphones last year. Rob made a good point when he said:
"The meth heads aren't really interested in produce, considering they can't sell it and they don't eat. You bring food to everyone else already."

On another note, I might be the only person on the planet without enough zucchini. I have three plants and barely anything to show for it. Everyone else seems to be pawning theirs off to acquaintances, distant relatives and people they just met crossing the street. Madness. Absolute madness.

I like your style of writing Lexxi, congrats on starting a blog here. Gardeners need to blog also :)

>>> I'm constantly worrying that someone will steal my fruit! <<<

Place a webcam somewhere and put them on YouTube!

I on the other hand have had my spagetti squash taken by someone walking through the lane.I have 2 left Shanna and I got 1 each and had about 8 still growing and now 2 and they are not rotting sooooo.
Its funny because My tomatos are rotting and my cukes are just hanging and they were not taken.

Wheeoo, you all are reminding me how glad I am to live in the country! 'course the deer aren't shy about stealing apples, grump. As far as zucchini goes, seems like rural people often fill boxes with them & put them out with a "free" sign, so I wouldn't worry too much! (and I wouldn't count on meth addicts to think too logically, lol!)
