I'm doing two posts tonight because 2 of my 5 faithful readers have already heard the Charlie story. By the way, thank you to my faithful readers. You inspire me to keep doing this, especially you Supreme Goddess #1. :o)
Over Memorial Day weekend, I posted about planting a small tomato garden. I have also mentioned that my attempts at gardening consist of me putting things in the ground and them dying. I am thrilled that it has been 8 weeks and I have technically not killed any of the plants (it seriously doesn't take much to make me happy)! Yea! Roma is not making a strong showing, but she's hanging on and this afternoon I noticed she has a tomato sprouting, or blooming, or whatever it is they do. Right now, Early Girl and Cherry seem to be in a race for who is going to ripen first, but Cherry has a lot more fruit. Beef Steak is currently in 3rd place. This is actually Beef Steak II since Sammy killed the first one right after I planted it, so he was about a week behind right out of the gate. Yes, I have decided my tomato plants are having a contest. I really am that easily amused, which made life pretty dang easy for James and will make life pretty dang easy for Mystery Husband #2 as well.
With all these tomatoes in the works, it looks like I might need to find (or invent) a good salsa recipe!
