From the Garden

I am so excited!  This evening I got to harvest the first ripe tomatoes of the summer!  They are on the small side, but the plants are loaded with many more tomatoes that are quite a bit larger and nicely sized for slicing.

As soon as the picture was taken, the smaller of the two was washed, wedged, and eaten.  There is nothing like summer's first taste of garden tomato.  It is heavenly!

We have already been enjoying sweet banana peppers for awhile, and tomorrow I think I will be able to pluck the first of the yellow summer squash.  Soon we will have lots of cucumbers and bell peppers; both red and yellow varieties.  I can hardly wait!

Ah, garden's bounty.  It doesn't get much better than this!
