Already - a tomato! It is about the size of a golfball. My dad used to have a "race" with his friends for the first ripe tomato. Although I am not racing with anyone, he would be proud. I also have some tiny bell peppers and a full-sized cayenne pepper. I planted a Better Boy tomato (shown), an Amana Orange, and two yellow cherries. I can't wait for that first tomato sandwich! I didn't grow a tomato plant one year and I will never do that again. There is nothing like having your own homegrown tomatoes in the summer. The herbs seem to be doing pretty well - I have a picture of the chives blooming below. I think I will make a salad tonight and put some of those pretty chive blossoms in it!
I am spending the day deep-cleaning my bedroom. I figure if I can deep-clean one room per weekend until school is out, then I won't have such an overwhelming pile of housework to do when summer vacation starts. Well, break time is over. Back to cleaning.
