those things you once though were gross…

Hey Mom, I might just like tomatoes after all…
It has taken me a long time, and even now sometimes I can’t eat them.
But when they are straight from the garden it is hard to resist.

I keep getting told not to pick them so early, but look at that color.

early girl

I mean, how can I help it.

(these are “early girls”. We have 3 other plants of different varieties in the garden , but these seem to match their name quite well and are the only ones producing and getting ripe so far.)

    We got this plant at Raley’s with fruit on it already back in june. I think that helped it along. The little ones that we got from the nursery are taking waaay longer and the ‘heirlooms’ only have flowers, I am wondering if we are going to see anything out of them or not in the next few months!

    Hi Nessie,
    Ate my first home grown tomatoe this evening–a teeny tiny but it was home grown and fresh! I’ll have a lot in a week or so.
    My Early Girls are big and green and hopefully will turn soon—then I’m in tomatoe heaven—

    (Is there an “e” at the end of tomatoe, tomato?)
