The First Harvest

The first fruits (tomatoes are a fruit, right?) of the garden have been harvested! However, it was not exactly as I planned. I have been watching the garden with great anticipation. Last night, I planned to fix a dinner salad with fresh picked lettuce and the 20 or so cherry tomatoes that had ripened. Imagine my surprise when I went out to the garden and couldn't locate a single red tomato! As I peered into my plants looking for the missing 'maters, Kenny, my 11 year old son, called out excitedly. "Hey Mom", he yelled "You gotta see this..........."

".........Toka likes tomatoes!"

This made me laugh out loud. Last year, my son picked all the flowers off my fuscias to feed to our tortoise. I hope your tortoise at least enjoyed the feast!

Sounds like my dog... He's a tomato thief too! Last year he stole a Cherokee Purple right before I was going to cut it up for a salad.

Sounds like something my girls would do. At least they were enjoyed by someone! Better luck next time, LOL.
