The Fruit of my Rooms


This is one of my favorite times of year. Being a September baby, I've always been partial to the end of summer/beginning of fall time of year. I love the feel of the air, the fact that the days are beginning to cool off a little, and the best part, my garden is finally producing things to eat.

I grew yellow tomatoes this year. I remember as a kid, my parents grew them and I loved the fact that they were less acidic than the red ones. I'm partial to the yellow cherry tomatoes as I can eat them like most people eat popcorn. I wasn't sure if they were going to do anything or not, as right after we planted them, we had a major wind storm that tore them up pretty bad. However, looking at them now, it seems that the wind storm did them a favor.

It's nice to sit down to dinner and have a salad that is made up of the things you've grown yourself. It somehow makes them taste better, and is a lot easier on the pocketbook. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got more tomatoes to pick. They're beginning to take over. LOL

Hi honey,

I know you love tomatoes, and I will save some seeds for you.

I'm so glad you stopped by. I miss you bunches. Kiss my baby for me, and dot your old man's eye for me. LOL

Love you baby girl,

That looks wonderful... I remember as a girl my grandfather would grow peas and we would wade through the garden and eat them out of the pods right there in the garden. Fresh vegetables out of your own garden are satisfying in a way that other veggies are not.
