The fruits of our labor.

After two weeks of planting we finally are able to have a harvest.  It is a wonderful feeling when you finally see fruit from all the labor you put into it.  What?  You don’t think we can have a harvest after two weeks?  Ok, I’m busted.  This harvest is from a plant that grew from a tomato that was thrown out with the garbage.  Some how this little plant grew near our AC units.  Ok, busted again.  There was no labor in it for us, but it is a lovely gift from God. 😀

Back to the harvest. Yesterday one of the girlies said we had a red tomato, so we went out to inspect.   Yep, we have one ready to pick!

We had the youngest kiddo pick the tomato.

Isn’t it an awesome sight! It does feel good to have something freshly grown from your garden, even though it is a bit small.

The girl wants to make tomato sauce with it. 😆

What’s growing in your garden?

    Congratulations on the first tomato of summer. Who got to eat it?

    My favorite meal of the year is the first fresh garden salad — from my backyard. Heaven!!
