For almost a year now (or possibly longer) I've been staring at a large dead cactus in the pot in my bedroom.  At least once a week I would say to myself, "Alright, this weekend I'm going to get rid of that and plant something."  And did I ever do it?  Of course not.  

Then, a couple months ago I was at the Italian Store with a friend grabbing a sub and I saw some seeds for San Marzano Roma Tomatoes.  Definitely something I would use on a regular basis, so I bought them.  Did I come home, clean out the pot and plant the seeds?  Of course not.

But FINALLY, last week I went to Frager's (best hardware store ever!) and picked up some potting soil, went home and took care of business.  And now, just a week later, look what I have.....tomato sprouts!!

I'll keep you posted on their progress  :)
