Despite all my best intentions, I somehow never get around to planting even things I would like to have, and even after I buy the plants or seeds!. I think it really started because I just loathe hot weather and so I basically never want to be outside.



Well...when it gets really hot I don't go out either - except to pick some tomatoes.
Then I head back inside. I put up (in the freezer) enough tomatoes last year that I still have a bunch left for chili and veggie soup and anything else that requires tomatoes. I put them up 1 lb. at a time so it's like opening a can of tomatoes - except mine are really tasty from the garden. Makes great soup and chili. I haven't yet put them into Mexican rice, but I think that could be pretty good, too.
