Maters Make Me Happy

See that tomato there in the back? The biggest one, the most orange, the first one to appear months ago? I've had my eye on it since it was a teeny little green tomato-ette. After a week of very hot temps and some nice heavy rain, it has finally started to turn red. Apparently, a watched mater never turns red. Or something like that. I can't wait to pick it, slice it, top it with a slice of fresh mozzarella, basil leaves from the herb garden, and a little balsamic vinegar. Homegrown tomato goodness.

A bonus picture: the flowers from the last post, blooming nicely after the same high temps and rain. Memorial Day isn't until tomorrow, but summer is definitely here already!
