Goodbye Tomatoes

Oh our lovely tomatoes how I will miss you for the next few months. I thought about making a horrible slideshow with sad music and zoom ins on the tomatoes as seedlings and then luscious red tomatoes, but then I thought, don’t be sad – the tomatoes did wonderful!  There was in late April where we thought the seedlings weren’t going to make it, then suddenly they exploded into multiple feet high plants in May, then there was the nonstop summer months where we were getting pounds of tomatoes every day.  Now October comes, and these babies are still producing, even through a summer of heat and super powerful wind (hello Irene). 

To the tomatoes, I love you very much, I will see you again soon! <3

The tomatoes left on the plants.  These green tomatoes will eventually turn red in about 1-2 weeks.  Isn’t it magical?

Want to know something beautiful? I found this guy here buried in the soil.  Do you know what it is? 

It’s the tag we made for the seedlings in February.  I hung this tag up in the garden as our flag. :)
