Our first tomatoes

Driving home on Saturday, I was just as excited to see the garden as Joe was to see Levi; we were both delighted. It's amazing the difference a week can make.
I came home to a multitude of tiny cucumbers, squash, & zucchini. My most favorite plant in the garden, an heirloom pumpkin, had vined out several feet. And, my basil plant had doubled in size (I'm a basil junkie).
The Russian-variety tomato had its first ripe fruit.
These fresh beauties have already been minced & mixed with a little olive oil & fresh chopped basil (and are mingling overnight) - sauce for pizzas tomorrow night.

WOW! You win! Jenny and I always compete to see who can produce the first vine ripe tomato, and you beat us both. I have green ones but no signs of them turning yet. Congrats : )
