home-grown-tomatoesWhen we moved into our new house, the previous owner planted a vegetable garden. Unfortunately he  planted it were the backyard grass would normally grow. I couldn’t bring myself to rip it all out without harvesting at least 1 crop of tomatoes. We got our basket and plucked as many as we could while Brad (sadly) pulled all of our tomato plants out of our yard. I have the perfect spot picked out to have an above ground garden though, so hopefully next summer we won’t be without tomatoes….because after this batch of tomatoes I don’t think I can go back to store bought ever again. I now understand why some people eat tomatoes like apples. They definitely aren’t doing it to store bought tomatoes though. We had so many extra tomatoes that we bagged a few up and took a walk in our neighborhood dropping off bag fulls to neighbors and friends. Samantha was my sweet little helper who delivered the tomatoes for me, and Sean supervised… from the stroller. I loved showing my kids the happiness of giving in this way. I’m really looking forward to starting up another vegetable garden asap!

    oh my goodness, those look amazing! I’m not normally a big tomato fan but I do love the fresh ones we get in our CSA each week. we’ll definitely have some tomato plants if we ever have our own garden. :)

    Samantha is such a sweetheart sharing the tomatoes with the neighbors!

    PS – maybe another blogger meet up when our wedding is over? Just two more weeks!
