First Summer Harvest!


OK, so my dreams of an enormous veggie garden kind of went *poof* rather fantastically, but look! A tomato from my yard! This has never happened before, in 5 years of growing tomatoes. It's red, it's not cracked, it's a decent size....I like it! The purple carrot, yeah it was a bit premature...but I wanted to make sure Ernie understood that we. are. growing. carrots. Like her favorite vegetable, ever, coming straight out of our garden. (Purple carrot on the outside, orange carrot on the inside- she forgave the purple for the sake of the orange. Why do I keep forgetting she is not a fan of the new and strange?)

don't you love that first tomato out of the garden? I had to stand behind the tomatoes for awhile and contemplate - would I or would I not split it in half and share with the husband? lol!

Nice ter'mater. Ours have been slow in coming this year. I'm growing Roma. I haven't checked our carrots yet, but I think they may be ready. You've got a cute one there - toddler size. :)

That's so cool! And those are beautiful veggies. You should be proud. :)

Girl, my garden is almost done! The heat has killed it - well, all but the weeds.

Awesome! I'm pleased to report that my potted tomato plants did well too. Especially the cherry and grape varieties.

I popped over because you were one of the only other moms on MMB to show distaste at the way "grown" women are acting over this Twilight thing. Sickening. Great blog!

We have a friend's CSA share this week while they are out of town and I almost cried when I opened it to discover 5 beautiful tomatoes. I ham overwhelmed with options!

Oh, are those dragon carrots? We grow the same, and I think that's what they're called. My girlies LOVE them! I may end up planting half the garden as carrots next year, on account of the girls were sooooo thrilled.

Congratz! Some of my plants really worked out and some didn't so much. I like you tomato and your carrot!
