what surpirse did i find in my garden yesterday?
A ripe tomato!
I know it's practically August and my family in California has been eating tomatoes from their gardens since March (well at least June 1st). But here in Oregon, we experienced a long winter, a late spring and then came June-uary. I don't think we even planted our tomatoes until late May it had been so cold.
Anyway, yesterday afternoon I looked at the garden and was so excited to see a little splash of orange. I was beginning to think we wouldn't see ripe tomatoes until the fall. So happy summer has finally arrived.
