I have to start over.

You ain't gonna believe this, but I sold all 380 tomato plants I had. This one guy had been calling me every week for 3 weeks telling me he wanted all the plants I had. I would set up a time and just before it was time for him to show up he would call with some kind of excuse for not coming. Well the third time was Friday afternoon and he told me he would be here Saturday morning to pick them up. Come Saturday morning at 10:00 A.M. and still no show or phone call I called him up and asked if he was still coming that I had a memorial service to go to at 11:00 and would be back at 1:P.M.. He tells me he was going to the farmers market and would be by at 1:30 after he was through at the market. I ask him which market he was going to and he tells me the one downtown. Well I happen to have a cousin that sells at that market and tell him so. It turns out he buys from my cousin all the time so I call my cousin up and ask him about this strange dude and how he is telling me about buying all my tomato plants. My cousin remembers this guy because he buys around $150.00 worth of tomato's from him every week and borrows a box from him and buys the same amount of produce from the seller next to him. My cousin asked him if he owned a restaurant for him to be buying so much produce the guy tells him no that it is for his family. So this all sounds a little strange but to each his own so I sit and wait and sure enough here he comes driving up in this huge van and his wife and 2 daughter's get out and I take them around back to my tomato's. He wants to know how many I want to sell and I tell him how ever many he wanted he says he will take them all so after counting 380 plants and give him the price he heads out to the van and brings cash back and we start loading up tomato plants. I ask him if he was going to start selling tomato's at the farmers market and he tells me no that it was for his family. Now I ain't no math genius but I can figure out that unless this man is Jesus he doesn't have a family that big to eat all the tomato's he is gonna get out of those 380 plants so I guess we will see what the hell he is going to do with all them maters cause he wants more in the fall and next spring. I just might be in the tomato plant growing business.
 I have another batch of seeds planted so I will have some tomato's this season for myself.


  1. Somebody needs to follow that guy and see what he is up to! You can make a lot of money selling them on the roadside.

  2. I would like to know what he is up to with all these plants. I forgot to mention that he bought all the plants my cousin had also. Thanks for stopping by.
