The Fruits (& Vegetables) of My Labor

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Back in April I blogged about starting my new garden. Now that the long hot summer days have done their magic I wanted to share the results with you. I will admit that I probably over planted, but it was pretty fun. The little orange cherry and yellow pear tomato plants are completely taking over and are incredibly delicious. If you have never eaten a homegrown tomato, you have no idea what you are missing. They are so flavorful…I eat them right off the vine. Next year do yourself a favor and at least put one in a pot in a sunny place and you will be in for a real treat. The vegetable garden has gone crazy too, especially my pumpkin vine…check out the one growing on my scarecrows shoulder. Anyone can do this. It doesn’t have to be as big as what I did – start small. The time and effort you take to plant something is totally worth the final results.

It’s all so lush I absolutely love it!  It will start turning soon, but I will have my pumpkins to carry me into fall!
