  1. Congrats on your first tomatoes of the season…it’s always so exciting! It looks like your garden is producing quite well for you this year!

  2. It looks like you are getting a decent harvest so far this year. Congratulations on enjoying the first tomatoes of the season this week.

  3. Congratulations on the first tomato!

  4. Thanks! I think that’s one of the reasons why I grow the pear/cherry tomatoes – it’s a little taste of what’s to come.

  5. What a nice picture of your first tomatoes. The list of the rest of your harvest is quite impressive!

    • Thank you! We’re gardening for two families (4 adults, 2 kids, and 1 baby) so we try to grow as much as possible. This is our fourth year, second year keeping track of the harvest) and I think we’re finally getting things figured out.

  6. First tomatoes = excitement begins

    This is my first year to keep track of my harvest. I am amazed! Looks like it is a good year for you!

    • Thanks! Last year was our first year keeping track and we never regretted it. It was so exciting to watch the total grow. I hope it surprises you as much as it did us!
