First Tomato Harvest

The gardens have been doing great! The snap peas came in first and everyone in the neighborhood enjoyed coming over and picking them - delicious! Green beans came in next but we were away and the plants were destroyed by Japanese Beetles - YUCK! I hated to do it but I had to rip up all the beans plants and get rid of them. The tomatoes are just starting to turn and everyone is very excited - everyone BUT Aidan that is. The girls helped me pick these grape tomatoes before lunch today and they were sooo yummy! There really isn't much better than tomatoes that are still warm from the sun! We're still waiting for the carrots, onions and garlic. They shouldn't be too far off!
