The Tomatoes are here!

I wish Bill could be here to taste this...our first tomatoes from our own garden plants.

We have had so much rain here this Summer, and so little sunshine, it is amazing to me that these plants are doing so well.

As a matter of fact, they are monster plants. Taller and wider than me! And full of unripened tomato goodness

Here is our very first ripe tomato. I took these pictures to bring to Bill so he could see the fruit of our labor. I thought i would share them with you too.

And as soon as he can start eating solid foods, i'm gonna make him some great meals with our own tomatoes and basil.

Until then i will eat some of them, freeze some for sauce and share the wealth. I hope your gardens are doing well also!

The first tomatoes are always exciting. Ours have a while still, not the best year for tomatoes for some reason, even with the sun we have had.

You are still in our thoughts and prayers.

Take care.

What amazing tomatoes! Your Bill will love seeing and smelling them, and I hope he will be able to taste them soon.
Our tomatoes are still quite small and very green, but the leaves are huge this year.
Happy harvest!

How exciting to have home grown tomatoes. They always taste so much different to bought one.
, I'm so so sorry to hear about Bill, I'm late getting the news I've been a bit flat tack, and feel awful I have missed this. I'm thinking of you and Bill so much and sending you all my love. You are such a warm and loving and supportive person, who is inspiring with your positivity. I hope his recovery is rapid.
Sending do much love to you and him
