    We’ve been picking some of those too! Not as many as I would wish, most of them are still green. My 3 year old daughter helps me pick them… regardless if they are red or orange/yellow! If they are not green, she says they can be picked! And they are soooooooooo good!

      they are! it’s interesting, the ones on the side of my garden that get morning/noon sun are doing better than the ones that get afternoon/evening sun. that, or the soil in one plot is better than the other. also, i bought “early girls” this year and they live up to their name. but i think i want to try some heirloom tomatoes next year. we’ll see. enjoy those little hands in the garden, so sweet.

  2. Sun kissed yummy and fresh…doesn’t get much better than that!

    I’m gathering photos for my own summer garden update. I got bowlfuls of cherry tomatoes before the plants succumbed to a bad pest infestation so I’m grateful. Can’t wait to try again! Homegrown tomatoes cannot be beat!

    We are finally eating tons of cherry tomatoes! And we are loving it! We are also harvesting a bunch of different tomatoes (can’t remember the names, I’m a bad gardener!). I didn’t take care of my garden as much as I would have liked to, with working full time, two small kids and baby #3 on the way. However, it doesn’t matter – the best gift is seeing my 3 year old Claire picking veggies from the garden – she is soooooooooooooo happy! And that makes me so happy too! :-)

      i’m happy you’re happy! that’s lovely. the days are flying by here, and i really should update with a new post. soon it will be back to school and winter and these lovely greens and reds will be a distant memory (think of supermarket tomatoes in january — yum ;))… so enjoy these days while we’ve got them. i am.
