YES! I finally have a perfectly beautiful, big, red tomato!
My big red tomato even has a smile, and that makes me smile! But what really makes me smile are the friends I've made throughout the blogging community. Friends like Kelli, from Animal-Friendly Eating, who was so sweet to send me one of her hand made refrigerator magnets. I *heart* you, Kelli. XOXO right back atcha!
Love your tomato! I actually have several items to make some veggie magnets just like that for my kids to have fun eating their veggies! I need to get around to finishing them! Kelli's is very cute! And your windowsill is lovely!ReplyDelete
Nice, it is good to meeet folks. Nice looking tomatoes Granny!ReplyDelete
aww yay! i heart you too granny! xoxoxoReplyDelete
Thank you, Shawn Ann. i love my kitchen windowsill when it's filled with fresh tomatoes!ReplyDelete
David, I've even actually met two of them in person!
Kelli, we've got to quit all this kissing and hugging...people will tell us to "get a room" ;-)
Aren't here little creations adorable...she sent me a chickie a while back. Sooo cute!ReplyDelete
I like your tomato's , especially those three at the right side of the window...they look like Cherokee Purples :o),. I see them between two slices of bread smeared wit mayonnaise :o)ReplyDelete
I love your fridge magnet! I also love the wonderful garden blogging community that we are among.ReplyDelete
I am still awaiting my first red tomato too.
How nice!!! I think that tomato did give you some good luck!ReplyDelete
Katrina, yes they are adorable. Much nicer then the ugly green clip, with advertising, that I was using!ReplyDelete
Ginny, That's exactly what I had for lunch....Cherokee Purple slices, light mayo, garden lettuce on cracked wheat toast. Mmmmm, good!
Rachel, all of you are special to me. My dearest friends, my gardening jewels :-)
I think so too, Robin. I was actually into "pounds" of tomatoes today!
I love seeing your tomatoes. It gives me hope that mine will be ready soon. You know, my tomatoes, the ones that are mostly growing in other people's yards.ReplyDelete
Carol, yes there is hope! If mine, at a month late, are now ripening....yours can't be far behind!ReplyDelete
Cute fridge magnet as a token of friendship, that's so sweet..n beautiful tomatoes u have there,Granny...;)ReplyDelete
HangKebon, I think you'll like being with this great group of garden bloggers. Many close friendships are formed here. I already consider you one of the best of friends :-)ReplyDelete
What a cute magnet! Looks like your tomatoes are starting to come in nicely!ReplyDelete
Meems, I don't think it's going to be a very good year for the tomatoes. The ones I planted for canning, and the Brandywines all are suffering from disease. I'm trimming off the bad leaves as fast as I can, but I think it's a losing battle. We'll have more than enough tomatoes for eating fresh though. It's a good thing I canned so many the past two years!ReplyDelete
What a sweet gal-and a cute cute tomato.....low maintenance too!ReplyDelete
Glad you're starting to get the big ones in. I'm patiently (hahahaha) waiting. Two more weeks oughta do it--if I can keep the darn hornworms off them. Luckily, the ones for hubby seem to be the target and so far my precious Brandywines have escaped the evil ones!
Whoohoo tomatoes! And your magnet is so cute.ReplyDelete
Sue, yes I am low maintenance, but I wouldn't really call me cute.....oh, you were speaking of the tomato!ReplyDelete
My precious Brandywines are dying, as are my Rutgers. All the seeds came from the same source, so that makes me wonder. It looks like the Cherokee Purples will be my producers this year, along with those little Bloody Butchers that have been pumping out the ripe tomatoes since June.
Daphne, I think I'll get more joy from the magnet than from the tomatoes this year.
Kelli's tomato is wonderful, & Annie's tomatoes are heartening.ReplyDelete
Donna, Kelli and her tomato are wonderful, and I'll be tasting the real thing tonight!ReplyDelete
What sweet gift. You ARE inspiring AG- and those tomatoes decorating the windowsill look great!ReplyDelete
Awww, Kelly, thank you.ReplyDelete
Woohoo! You got tomatoes.ReplyDelete
She hit the nail on the head. Love the magnet.
Ribbit, it looks like the Cherokee Purples will be the bulk of this year's tomatoes. Can't be too unhappy about that!ReplyDelete
Love it! She's right, you are such an inspiration!ReplyDelete
Awww, Erin, you are the inspiration for all of us.ReplyDelete
What a cheery little garden magnet for your kitchen! And pretty fitting for you the tomato queen. :DReplyDelete
Kitsap, I've definitely dubbed it my good luck tomato. Today I picked my first 1-pounder, a beautiful Cherokee Purple.ReplyDelete
