August 3: Today I noticed that our tomatoes are finally starting to ripen! Book Boy and I planted five tomato plants around the deck in late May. We’ve had little green tomatoes on the plants for quite some time – possibly even a month? – but not even a hint of one starting to change color. When I checked the tomatoes this morning after being gone for two days, I found that the first bunch (of six!) is finally, finally starting to turn red.
I can’t wait until we can eat them. The kids and I have been enjoying tomatoes from the Corn Stand (that’s what it’s called) near our house, and we’re looking forward to eating some juicy red tomatoes from our own garden.
Won’t be long now! (Pic added 8/5)
