First Harvest From My 3 Plant Tomato Plantation
I harvested the first 5 tomaters from my plants today. These aren't quite as ripe as I would like, but my meager garden is currently being ravaged by some manner of yard beasty -- most likely a dear. The first tomato that went red disappeared mysteriously the other night... I thought I would be safe and grab the rest of the ripening fruit off a bit early.
I also have about 8 hot pepper plants that are laden with some nice hot bastards. I hope whichever foul ungulate that is taking liberties with my produce takes a bite of one of those. I actually had the pleasure of watching a deer get into a pepper patch once (long story) and it is one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
Anyhow, maybe tonight I will sit out on my porch and admire the neat brown grass (mine is actually holding up, crabgrass excepted). Seriously though, rain Gods why have you forsaken us? I need to keep my insignificant patch of scrubby suburban lawn lush and green. This is very important I think...
