Sorry About That!

Sorry I posted somethings intended for another blog. I am only beginning to learn how to manipulate this blog website.

For my garden post: My tomato seedlings were killed off a couple of weedks ago in an overnight frost. A pity. I finally sprouted some heirloom tomatoes. I would have liked to have tasted them.

So now I am going to have to go to the nursery and buy tomato plants. Sigh.

By the way, I read somewhere that tomatoes, or the plant, or leaves perhaps, can be used to dye things. Anyone heard anyything about this? Mordant needed?

Yeah I've heard that as well!

They use the stalks and leaves if I remember correctly, I'll check my book and get back to you on that.

I do remember that the mordant is allum, though.
