No Rotten Tomatoes Here!

Surprise from the Garden: this season's first ripe tomato.

Okay, it's a small pear tomato but it will be enjoyed as much as a two-pound beefmaster.

Glad I ventured into the garden early spring.  These are the earliest tomatoes I have grown in years.

Here's the beefmaster...small now, but given time this little tomato will rock the scales.

Lovely cascade of developing tomatoes.

Lovely Bean Volunteer

During the cold, rainy winter months, a small little bean seed sprouted.  And grew, and grew.

Now that the sunny warm weather of spring is here, this little volunteer is blooming prolifically.

Outgrowing the wooden stake, I added room for additional growth by tying a string to the top of the pole and then to a nearby light fixture.

l love to stake the bean plant at an angle because they dangle away from the leaves and become very easy to see during harvest.

A Dilly of a Plant

Flowering Dill
You have got to love Mother Nature.  No one makes color choices as brilliantly as she.  Just look at the bright yellow blooms against the deep emerald green (hello Pantone).

This is Dill 2.0. 

I planted a bit of dill last summer.  It grew and was enjoyed.  Then it bloomed and set seed.  These seeds replanted themselves and grew over the winter and into the spring. 

Now, More flowers...and hopefully seeds which create another wonderful plant for me to enjoy. 

Thanks Mother Nature for the beautiful colors and for the robustness of your plants!
