A big welcome to Whitney! Thanks for following my blog!
This is the tomato that I've been photographing for weeks now! It's a Rutger variety. The other day it went from reddish... to red. My son Aaron was out inspecting the garden... and picked it! Lucky for me, he brought it in to show me before devouring it!
We each ate half... Oh my goodness... I have never tasted a tomato like that! It was so sweet! Wow!
My Romas are turning red too! Tomato sauce... here I come!
I bought some of those Mrs. Wages packets that Granny's been talking about... want to try the ketchup. Wouldn't that be awesome if my family actually liked it?
My sunflowers are all blooming now! Just love them!
Well... today I'm riping out my green beans.
They didn't hardly produce anything... just looked sickly all the time. The seed I used was old... maybe that was my problem. Gone are my visions of jars of canned green beans lining my pantry shelf... I'll have to go the farmer's market and buy some.... : (
Be gone sickly green beans... make way for a fall planting of broccoli seedlings... and spinach... and lettuce.. and arugula... and ???
Oh, I bought Eliot Coleman's Winter Season Handbook and just started reading it... Ah... visions of cool weather crops gracing my dinner table in the chilly winter.... Hmmmm...
