You're lucky your job is within walking distance and you have tomato
plants. Mine have produced a measly three, with no more buds in
sight--at twelve bucks a plant times five.  A salad is fine for lunch,
but where's the protein? Doesn't need to be animal protein unless you
must watch carbs--garbanzos or kidney beans will do. Instead of baked
Doritos, Triscuits would have been a smarter choice-- no trans fat and
far more B vites and fiber than those Doritos (cornmeal is very
high-glycemic).  And you do need at least a teaspoon or two a day of
poly-or-monounsaturated fat, otherwise you cannot assimilate vitamins
A, D, or E.  A drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil or a few Greek olives
would have provided that and made that salad yummier and more filling.
That coffee will help--the hotter the better.  A few nuts or berries
are safe ways to indulge munchies, provided you are not allergic to
them.
Today I had a turkey BLT on low-carb, high-fiber toast with a little
mayo and some homegrown tomato slices (with my plants' miserable
yield, each slice costs more than a dollop of caviar).  Mug of Uganda
Bugisu, black.  Will have a breve made with half diluted cream/water
blend and half plain Soy Dream.  Yesterday I found a Chinese buffet
restaurant that had a huge international variety--chicken tandoori,
steamed shrimp, crawfish, mussels, halibut, salmon and crab legs plus
green beans, bean sprouts, broccoli, mushrooms and the broth from
wanton soup.  Yum!  (For those who can do some carbs, they also had
sushi and fresh fruit--sadly, no berries or melon so I did not have
dessert).  I wasn't even tempted to sample the noodles, rice, egg
rolls or dim sum. On Aug 23, 2006, at 3:37 PM, Brett Mason wrote:

Sandy you paid $12 a plant for tomato's... wow.
Mind if I ask you what kind they were for that money?
When I lived in the chicago area (many years ago) I believe the only 
luck we had with tomato's were the plum tomatos?? I think they are 
called and the beefsteak... other than that it was a constant battle 
with the bugs...  Have you tried growing them inside, might not be quite 
as tasty but they do well indoors too.
you lived in wisconsin right?? or am I thinking someone else,  given 
that, tomatos WILL grow indoors there in the winter too... if they do in 
chicago they should in wisconsin, ya aint that much further north.
just my 2 cents.

They were Big Boy and Early Girl. The $12 included the landscape  
firm's services. I used to get at least 10-12 tomatoes per plant per  
season (of course, sometimes the squirrels would get to them first).   
Bugs aren't the problem here, erratic rainfall is this year.  No room  
to grow them indoors.
