Tomatoes are "the thing" in my summer garden - they're what I plan everything else around, they're what gets me motivated to plant. Sure, I also grow and enjoy squash, eggplant, and other stuff, but tomatoes are my killer app, the thing that keeps me gardening when I'm blah and unmotivated and in the middle of a remodel and don't want to do anything.

Garlic is the motivator crop of my fall planting. Hardneck garlic with huge cloves and a flavor you can't get at the store.

What are yours?
