The Tomatoes are Finally In!

Remember when I posted about our planting the garden? It was on April 19th. Well, guess what? It's September 9th and we are FINALLY getting some tomatoes!

Last month we were able to harvest a few little ones that were starting to ripen on the vine, but just a few. The tomatoes are now growing big and getting ripe. All at once, of course!

It was very strange...the plants grew fantastically all summer - tall, green, healthy, with little bitty tomatoes that just wouldn't get big.

But now, we can go out every evening and return to the kitchen with this:
The neighbors are going to love us when I ring their doorbells and offer fresh tomatoes!

  1. They are heirloom. They are not your perfectly round and blemish free specimens but they are delicious.
