Finally...

I have some food that tastes like I remember it did in the States! It's a wonderful, vine-ripened tomato! I had to grow the tomatoes myself, but I have such a feeling of accomplishment now. I didn't realize how boring 'store bought' ones were until I picked my first cherry tomato off the vine and popped it into my mouth. Yum!

That may not sound very important to blog about to some, but if you knew that I have never even mowed a lawn in my life [well, now you do...] you could appreciate how un-horticulturally inclined I am. Does that make me horticulturally challenged? Hmm...But I digress...
Anyway, a few months ago, Hubby bought me 4 seedlings, we popped them into the ground and voile! There they are!
This may not be an exciting thing for you to read about, but for anyone who has ever left the comfort of 'civilization' with 24/7 stores within a few miles, you can understand a little of what I am feeling. I think I'll go have another 'mater sammich now.

That is awesome! I do NOT like tomatos, but I tried to grow some this summer and they never even tried to grow.... They were even plants when I bought them! hahaha
