    Well, I'm back. This year I grew some tomatoes. I did very well, sort of. Well, I got about six tomatoes so far and there are more on the plants.
    However, I have had a hard time remembering to water them, so their not so juicy. Oh! They taste so good, though!!
    I love growing my own tomatoes!!!!
    I should have put in my greens a couple of weeks ago, but my tomatoes didn't finish in time. I guess I need to get some earlier tomatoes. Or, at least, get them in the ground earlier. I let these stay in the house a month too long while I was busy with my momma.
    I suppose there are some things that just need to be done at a certain time...

    Those are some nice greens! I can relate to the bland greens from the grocery store. Voted

    I have harvested my garden of greens about four times, each time it looked like it would die from lack of greenery. However, it comes back time after time with ever more greenery for me to harvest and eat! I have never tasted greens that were so delicious before! I need to go out and harvest again, but I look forward to the wonderful foods I get to bring into my house with the knowledge that I grew it, I know exactly what is in it. What a wonderful feeling!
