My first tommies

My first tommies
They’re not pretty, but they’re mine.

Much to my surprise, I’ve become a bit of a gardening bore. I always thought I was the kind of girl who didn’t like to get her hands dirty. Now I know that I just needed to see the purpose in making such a mess. There’s free food at the end of this hassle? Let’s do it!

One day last week, I spent three hours weeding and pruning and getting my gardens (one with roses, the other with tomatoes) in order. The depressing thing is that I could spend another six hours working on it and not be satisfied. The awesome thing is that I am eating free tomatoes every day now.
