just call me martha

15 Jun

as long as i can remember summer there have been tomato plants. big, fat, juicy maters that cried out to be sliced with duke’s mayo and white bread. i’m literally smacking my lips thinking about this.

and just as much as i love tomatoes (which rank up there with cheese and my dog chloe) i love my husband. okay, okay i love my husband more. but i promise i love tomatoes a whole lot.

he knows about my love for tomatoes and he built me my very own container garden. isn’t he super? i’m the proud parent to 5 tomato plants, 1 squash, 1 zucchini, basil, and 2 eggplants.

and the produce count?

on the vine: 4 tomatoes, 1 eggplant

ripe: 0

come on late june/early july. i’m hungry!

    I love the garden! I am also a HUGE lover of tomatoes. We planted tomatoes for the first time this year. We have had green tomatoes growing for a while, but they’re just teasing us because they won’t turn red!

    Are your eggplant the long, skinny ones? Or the fat ones? Let me know how they do because I want to plant some next year.
