It’s hard to believe how much my little garden has changed since I planted it in the late Spring. Sorting through the pictures, I’m amazed at how tall the tomato and basil plants are and how full the herbs have become.
This week, I got my first handful of ripe tomatoes. These always seem the best. Maybe it’s because there are never enough to use. Or maybe because I know I’ll have too many tomatoes soon enough. Eating them with almost every meal. Possibly giving a few away to my family.
For now, I’m excited to have tasted the first of the yellow cherry tomatoes. There were only four of them and they were quite small. However, they were juicy and just a bit sweet.
I even waited until the evening to pick and enjoy the tomatoes so I could share them with Bryan (I may have briefly considered keeping them all to myself).
