There's nothing like homegrown vegetables and herbs. I read a really helpful article about it before I sarted growing my own. Tonight we had spaghetti with fresh sweet basil and chives from my little garden. De-Li-Cious. We relocated to North Carolina a month ago and unfortunately, I had to leave my tomatoes and cucumbers behind. Fortunately, I started everything in pots, so I was able to get baby-sitters for them.
My Dad's been taking care of the tomatoes. (Thank you Daddy!) He called today, on the video phone, to show me the first ripe tomato. I'm so proud. It looked great. I called back and asked to get a picture so I could add it to my blog and he was like "Well, no. Actually, I can't show it to you again". So I'm like, "Why not?" And he holds up this super juicy, dripping chunk of tomato and pops it in his mouth! Hee,hee, hee. I'm sitting there watching him smack and lick his fingers off my tomato!! I guess I can let him off this time since he's been so great about taking care of them for me :o)
Fortunately, there was an even bigger tomato still on the vine, so he went out to get it for me. I'm going back to Maryland this weekend so I can get a few to bring down here. I can't wait.
This is my Dad showing me one of the tomatoes on our video phone. That's Brandon and I down in the corner.
I hear the cucumbers aren't doing as well though. We left those at Brandon's parents house. So, we'll have to stop by for a little look-see during the next visit to Maryland. I'll post some pics.
