Yeah, so 4 cherry tomatoes...

It happens every year. I start the tomatoes early indoors. I baby the seedlings to give them a good headstart. I gradually ease them to the outside world and do everything within my power so that I'll be able to harvest in mid-July, but this is all got TODAY. I'm not really complaining (can't change our higher altitude and cooler temps), I just would like the rest to ripen and ripen fast.

  2. Kat - was enough for a lite lunch with some french cheese (Livarot) and bread. I really cannot complain!

    Holly - you feel my pain and I feel yours! Our climates have a lot in common although not that much rain this year. For 2012 I'm not even going to bother with corn anymore. My dozen aztec blues are stunted for lack of sun/heat. Maybe I'll grow cabbages instead.

  5. Andrea - I've seen passionfruit vines around here but mostly in gardens at lower altitude. We're up at about 700 meters and our growing season is always at least half a month behind the rest. We do pretty good with berries though!

  7. Faith - in our minds (mouths) they were the best natural candy ever. I guess most every gardener dealing with tough growing conditions would likely say that about their first tomatoes of the season, but still...it was like biting into tomato holy grail!
