Thinking on this as my body crumbles slowly away. while it seems a strange tragic irony that as my self-possession, knowledge, persona and very soul deepen and ripen — i feel twice the human being i was at 18 or 20 — my body aches, burns and degrades as the tissues holding me together wear out through overuse, truly, the alternative to ageing is far worse. 

I’m usually not one for inspirational phrases or, you know, words of wisdom, but this actually made me feel better. I haven’t been down or anything, or sulking about my “old age”, but it is just one of those nice reminders of time.
Growing older, so far, has afforded me opportunity to meet sweet-ass people, travel to cool places and east great food, develop new interests and hobbies, and meet my lady love who is incidentally a man.
Also it’s a good reminder that I am actually super young in the grand scheme of things, and there is lots of time for things like careers, which is a constant source of anxiety for me. 
I got totally side tracked while writing this post and have no idea what I was saying except growing old lets you have experiences and time. Go team getting old!

What a lovely reminder.

Self-Made: Growing Heirloom Tomatoes

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and thus marks the time of year where we should be thankful for the harvest. In this post particularly, the tomato harvest. The beautiful heirloom tomatoes shown above were grown by a very dear friend of mine, Caylan. 

Wanting to know more about gardening, and being oh so envious of her harvest, I asked her a few questions to help her share her wealth of gardening knowledge.

M: What kind of tomatoes did you grow this year?

C: One kind called brandy vine an [heirloom] variety that has soooooo many tomatoes for the plant. [I’ve planted] eleven different varieties and I am [testing] which ones I like best. Not all of them have ripened yet so I can’t really say which ones are better tasting yet.

Cherry tomatoes, like sweet million the variety I planted, are amazingly easy compared to the [regular] tomatoes which can be fussy.

Me: What are your top 3 tips for people looking to grow their own tomatoes?

C: Yellow tomatoes are not as delicious as red tomatoes; they are more [mealy] in texture. Yellow pear cherry tomatoes are pretty but nothing to be excited about [in taste] compared to red cherry tomatoes.

Water only the roots, don’t get water on the leaves [because] they will burn in the sun and if [water] gets on the tomatoes [it] will cause them to split.

Learn how to properly trim your tomatoes [because it] is very important for high tomatoe yield. [You do this] by removing  the “suckers” aka the branches that are going to suck energy from the fruit. And shake your tomato flowers so that they can self fertilize with higher frequency.

M: What do you plan on making with all your beautiful tomatoes?

C: I plan on eating as many of them fresh as I can. And then I will make tomato sauce [to freeze]. I will also cut them I half and slow roast them at low heat In the oven to make delicious roasted tomatoes.

Caylan, a master do-it-yourselfer and a Salt Spring Island native, has the natural ability to forage, grow and make almost anything - or at least I like to think so - herself. And these tomatoes are the fruit (literally, oh puns!) of her labour. This year she also contributed her gardening knowledge in an article about building community through gardening in the August issue of Sad Mag.
