The PayOff

Earlier I posted a couple of pictures of my meager little garden spot. Everything is starting to come in now and it's time to start reaping the benefits of my labor. We've already gotten a few green beans, some little squash, chile peppers, jalapenos, and grape tomatoes. Now it's time for the big tomatoes to start ripening. I have three varieties of heirlooms....Red, purple, and Mr. Stripey. These are going to space out very nicely with the purple ones ripening now, the red ones will be next, followed with the Mr. Stripey tomatoes in about another month or so. This has been the best little garden that I've had since we bought this house seven years ago!

now you've got me motivated to have a small garden next year. I've already decided on the perfect spot and I'm going to try to get it all ready this fall for planting.
Glad to hear there was nothing too serious wrong and you will still be able to compete in the triatholon.
I love you,

For anyone interested, in that second picture from the bottom those are carrots in bottom left of the shot. I never tried to grow any before and they really surprised me by doing so well.

Are you sure you didn't bring in some ringers from the farmer's market for your photo? :)
I've got tomatoes, but they aren't near as purty as yours.
Love, Lisa

Nice tomatoes!
I'm glad your tests turned out O.K.
....I still say it's just TOO HOT to be out running, biking, and swimming....well, maybe swimming's O.K. ( at a leisurely pace) :)
