Tomatoes!

I went through the back gate this morning into my neighbor's yard to help pick tomatoes. He had underestimated how fast they would grow and how much they would produce...wow! I spent an hour picking cherry tomatoes while Tristan slept in. My neighbor rewarded my efforts with a full-size grocery bag completely filled with tomatoes of all different varieties. 

Needless to say, we'll be eating a lot of gazpacho.

Oh my...the first tomato of the summer, truly an important moment!! Our plants are growing nicely, but it will be well over a month till we bite into the first one...can't wait!!

Oh, enjoy them, and do tell us how the gazpacho came out :-)
