We planted a "Rapunzel" cherry tomato plant this year for the first time, and we picked the first handful of fresh tomatoes today! The plant was already flowering when we picked it up at garden center, so it was well on its way before we even had it in the ground. The other tomato varieties are growing fast as well.
The flavor and texture of tomatoes that ripen on the vine is out of this world wonderful, and the first ones picked are ALWAYS the best! Later on in the season we'll have so many tomatoes and peppers that we won't know what to do with them all, but for now, it is so nice to enjoy the first handful of the season!
We are already enjoying rhubarb, strawberries and herbs from our gardens, but I'm especially enjoying sharing the experience with my little ones - they were so excited to plant seeds and seedlings, and LOVE watering with their little water cans every chance they get!
