Okay, technically it was the third tomato. But, first or third, we are so very excited about our little tomato plants! About two and half months ago we planted two "big" tomato plants and one "cherry" tomato plant. We've already picked two cherry tomatoes. This picture, taken on Saturday, was our first ripe big tomato! At least a dozen other big green tomatoes are ripening still and I've found about that many more cherry tomatoes growing. The plants themselves are over four feet tall and have grown easily. I especially enjoy the tomato-y smell I get on my hands whenever I water them! I absolutely love fresh garden tomatoes. Mmmmm!
We're also excited about our little corn patch. I'll have to give them their own post, but we're hoping for a bit of fresh corn this fall too.
