Tomatoes

Cool, huh?

This is my first harvest of full-grown tomatoes.  I didn't look at the tags before I harvested these because it's starting to rain and rain and my hair do not good companions make.  I can see why Ugly Hornworm wanted at them!

I noticed one of the tomatoes is cracked (although still edible).  I know that was all my fault and am surprised I didn't have more tomatoes like this since I think I've watered the vegetable garden no more than five times this season.

I haven't tasted these yet but I will before we leave on Friday for Norway.

I did take the time to feel them as I washed them.  They were clean and firm.  So nice knowing that no chemicals were used anywhere near these plants.  These snapped right off the vine when I picked them; others that seem to be fully ripe didn't come off so easily so I'll leave them for another day or two.

I'm sure a good many of you are happy as I am that I've finally gotten real full-size food out of my garden.  Now maybe I'll stop whining about it and move on to bigger and better things.
