The other day, I went to Kaiser to pick up my pain meds. Of course, I went to the patio to check on my green beans and tomatoes. The remaining green beans were fat and gassy (I left them alone), but my cherry tomatoes were red and plump. I gobbled up a dozen or so. Then I noticed some delicious-looking Roma tomatoes to the right. I couldn't remember if I had planted those as well. I harvested about a dozen, put them in my jacket pocket, and then surreptitiously planted some snow pea seeds in the next planter to the right. A nurse must have seen me, because next thing I knew, I was involved in a high speed chase on I-680 South. I evaded the police in my Nissan Xterra, using moves learned in after-school football games in Chicago, and made it home. I have since used some of the Roma tomatoes in salads and am waiting for the last four or so to ripen on my counter. Note: Parts of this post are true.

Kaiser Martinez (CA) has these lovely planters near their pharmacy. Sometimes there's stuff planted there and sometimes there isn't. I've Johnny Cornseeded some nice corn, greenbeans, snow peas, and tomatoes out there. The tomatoes are doing well right now. I have severe arthritis in my lower back. If I move, I'm OK. If I don't, the pain is almost like an infected tooth that's ready for root canal.
