I'm not a green thumb. Wasn't born on a farm...and I don't really have a desire to take care of plants. I can only sustain spider plants it seems. But tomatoes, I love and will do whatever I can to grow them.
Back in April when my Dad was visiting, I talked to him about wanting a tomato in time for the 4th of July. He said "get the early variety. " So we went shopping and bought a couple of "early girls" as they were called. We planted and hoped.
Well it worked! I had my first tomato in time for the 4th! And I mean, JUST IN TIME. Don't ask me why this made me happy. Sometimes it's the little things in life, I guess!
And we ended up having a small get together or cookout with a few friends.
Hope your holiday was great!
