Harbinger (n): 
anything that foreshadows a future event; omen; sign: Frost is a harbinger of winter.
This little tomato, which I hold in my somewhat beat up palm, is the first of what I hope is a few hundred pounds of tomatoes, growing out there in the garden.
The first.
Woo hoo!!
The zucchini started a week and a half ago, along with the cucumbers.  This week the beans began.  Now I find a tomato.  Can lots of food be far behind?
I guess we'll see!

  1. Exciting!! We lock all the doors and keep the windows up when zucchini comes around!! hahaha, no really!
    Hope to see more food from your garden! Looks good!!

  2. Hello kindred spirit : ) I had to laugh to myself today when I shoved three cherry tomatoes fresh off the vine and rinsed with the garden hose into my mouth at once - and then I did it again. None of these babies have made it to the house yet. Ahhhhh summertime...

  3. Congratulations, you beat me. I have cukes, zucchini and beans too but no tomatoes (of any size) yet.

  4. Oh, I'm so happy someone is having a successful garden this year. I've had blooms but that's it...I give up.

  5. WOO HOO! Our garden is mostly done and when I find a tomato I pop in straight in my mouth (without the benefit of washing with the garden hose).

  6. Oh yes...that first tomato is always so incredibly exciting! Congratulations!!!


I always love to hear from you. Thank you for leaving your comment here!
