We picked our first two vined ripened tomatoes on Sunday. They weren’t as big as they should have been but they were delicious. We were fortunate to have any tomatoes after all the rain we had. We still have quite a few ripening on the vines. They should be ready in a couple of day.
Tom and I were excited to see the fruits of our labor. It is hard to believe that two grown people could get so excited about tomatoes. I had forgotten how good a homegrown tomato tastes. The last time we had them was 22 years ago from my father’s garden. He grew the best beefsteak tomatoes every years. It is going to be hard to go back to buying tomatoes from a store.
But if God willing, we will always have next year to grow more. That will be something to look forward to. We are hoping to add more raised beds this years.
I picked four cups of blueberries this afternoon from our bush. Tomorrow I am planning to make a berry sorbet tomorrow using red raspberries and blueberries.
Brian surprised me yesterday with these weeds flowers that he picked yesterday from our front yard.
What more could a person ask for than to have a child bring them flowers that they picked themselves. One of lifes beautiful moments.
