Nothing like the first ripe tomato warm off the vine! I’m trying to resist inhaling today’s whole crop.

    I tend to go to the garden before breakfast . . . leaving no grape or cherry tomatoes that are ripe! Such a treat first thing in the morning! Same for the blueberries – but those won’t last the day if the birds spy the ripe ones! :happyflower:

    Homegrown tomatoes are my favorite. I went to the farmers market a week ago and tomatoes were $1.25 each. Ouch!

    Those look beautiful. Are they cherry or full size? I wish I’d remember to plant a cherry tomato or two. They usually ripen up here before the full size ones and kind of tide us over until the big ones are ready. My husband doesn’t like them as well as big ones, that’s why we do the global bucket thing. That is the only way I can grow decent regular size tomatoes.

    Now if I could just keep the neighbor kids from picking them all before they ripen. :hissyfit:

    I picked my first tomato here today! I planted tomatoes from seed this year, but I bought one early girl plant just in case I killed all the others. They all lived, but they’ll ripen much later and I’m glad to have the early girl. Especially today.

    You really should do quality control you know Suzanne! Need to make sure every one of them is top quality!

    Wow! I’m impressed that you have ripe tomatoes already! Our’s are a long way off yet.

    Oh man… all I need is a little salt, and I would chow down.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
