    Aint she a dandy!? I saw my first blossom today. It's been so cold and wet here, that we'll be lucky if we get tomatoes and melons before frost.

    Woot! She's a beaut!

    I hear you, Heather! This has been a weird weather year … I was going to start all sorts of plants as seedlings, but it was just too cold. So I cheated and got myself some big tomato plants, as well as a few baby tomato plants. 😀

    (yum, melons!)

    Thanks, Mad! I almost feel like it would be a shame to eat this baby. (Almost.)

    My babies are only a foot tall. :^(

    So, what's your preferred eating method? :^)

    My little tomatoes aren't quite a foot tall yet, Lynn – I just lucked out that I didn't kill my two big tomatoes yet! 😀

    I love love love anything fresh tomato. I'll have a recipe on the living senses blog on Monday that is perfect! I eat a lot of tabbouleh (SO good). LOVE BLT's with soy bacon (morningstar farm – yum!). Just fresh slices, still warm from the sun/vine. Salad (I eat a LOT of salad).

    If I luck out and get a huge bumper crop, I'll probably make/can tomato sauce for Fall/Winter, but I'm not counting on having that many!

    What about you?

    OH, and I'm planning to keep the seeds for my two heirlooms and trying again next year. 🙂

    WOW! Mine are still the size of a marble! It's a beauty!

    I have a lot of green marbles, Cat! I just checked my red baby though … not ready yet! I'm getting very nervous – I'll be VERY upset if the critters beat me to my first tomato!!!

    That tomato is beautiful!

    Yay! Just flowers here – sheesh!

    What a tomato!

  • Brenda June 20, 2010, 4:01 PM

    Thank you, June, Summer and Päivi!

    I need to go out to check my tomato … I'm so impatient!
