Default ContainerTed ::: Back from the dead again

Just got home from hospital. Wanted all to know that I've been having a rough time with severe pancreatitis. I guess it was too many good drinks over the years. Right now, my doctors are hopeful I can get thru this. My strength is pretty good, given all the stuff I've been thru. But I wanted you folks to know that I appreciate being a part of this community and like the danged cancer we went thru, they can hurt me, but I don't have to like it. So much for my attitude check.

But here's the good stuff. Somehow I've been able to manage a few tomatoes. Here's a couple of pictures.

For my good friend Retiree. here's Ashleigh from your old seeds.

For another good friend, Clara, here's Henry's Sunshine from this year.

For Craig (NCTOMATOMAN), to whom we all owe so much, and whom I am humbled to have been able to call my friend, here's Shelby's Purple which took a lot of searching.

Eveyone take care and wish me well in the fight ahead of me. I have always felt privileges to been a part of this community. I hope I can continue for a while.

Gee Ted, not good news, but I'm sure your Doctors will get you through it and back on deck soon. Nice to see you posting your tomatoes again, I will try them one day.


Take care my friend, stay well.

Dear Ted-
I am glad to see you back and wish you the very best! I hope you can do some self care and I think a glass of your homemade tomato juice has simply got to help!

Hello Ted:
I've followed your postings and borrowed your good information about container growing since you lived in Atlanta and posted at Garden Web. I avidly read your advice and knowledge posted here at Tomatoville.
Best wishes for your good health, keep your spirits up and keep chugging along.
