Harvest

Remember my "vegetable garden"? Okay, it was just a tomato plant. The last time we saw it the tomatoes were about the size of large pearls. They made it to about the size of ping pong balls, and after several weeks of seeming like they would never turn red...


They did! I was so proud of them! Even more than I was of myself.


Apparently I'm not good at remembering to water them. Oops? I thought that's what the rain was for, but apparently it's been a dry summer. I was just trying to make sure I didn't over water them, which I'm sure is equally dangerous.

Lee got me a book on organic gardening so hopefully next year the tomatoes will be bigger and less droopy. I'm already working on a too-large list of items for next year's garden: potatoes, garlic, basil, parsley, rosemary, lavender, cucumbers, spinach, green onions, green beans...

Those plants look exactly like those in my flower boxes. Green thumbs are overrated.

Glad to know I'm not alone!

With tomatoes sometimes it seems like too much isn't enough - I didn't water mine enough and although they ripened - they split as well because there was enough water :(

Hannah -- That sucks! Oh well, there's always next year. :)
