The Garden Of Delight...

"It's difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato" ~
Lewis Grizzard

....and because it pleased me, I ate my first ripe maters straight from the vine.

WOW those tomatoes look good.... I found (1) ripe one in my garden, w/all the rain & cool weather we've had I wonder if I'll have a harvest at all ;-(.

News is reporting a blight effecting the tomatoes in this section of the country. Luckily none found here so far. and.... of course it's raining again!

Lucy it has been unusually cool here for July ... I am hoping for rain today. The roof retains the heat from the sun, so my garden is doing well.

Thanks Juliana :)

I always eat the first one from the vine - juice running down me, ruining my current shirt. And it's always worth it!

OhioMom said...

LOL Grace ... like that name huh?

Claudia .. it should be an annual ritual for the mistress of the garden to partake of the first fruit :) LOL about the juice...

Balisha said...

I think you dripped juice on your chin...LOL Aren't they the best? Warmed from the sun and dripping with juice.

What a great shot of those tomatoes. You must have such great satisfaction knowing that it was your hands that helped them along.

There's nothing like home grown tomatoes. I think my skins going to turn red from eating so many. Lets enjoy every bite because before we know it, soon it will be winter.
