The tomatoes are here!

After nearly five months of toil the first cherry tomatoes are turning red.

No sight of the other heirlooms yet, although there are quite a few blossoms on the other plants.

We interrupt our regularly scheduled post…

I just finished a pretty good post and I lost it during a botched save and publish attempt. No sign of it in my draft queue. Instead of throwing the iBook through a window — which would only punish the innocent, since this is an ongoing WordPress issue — I bring you the following pictures of my tomato garden. It’s amazing how much they have grown in two months. I must say, I’m pretty proud of them, especially since I grew them from seed.

UPDATE: The previous post was saved. See below for details.

I started planting various things from seeds and bulbs in January.
In mid-March, my tomato plants were seedlings.

I didn’t remember what those were.

By April 1, my tomato plants were beginning to look like tomato plants.

I still didn’t know what these things were.

Now it’s June and things are taking off. I finally figured out what those things are: coleus.

And the tomato plants? Ready to make babies!

I’ll let you know how they taste.
