Well, we all remember this not so yummy looking half-eaten tomato being destroyed by a horn worm (thank you, Wanda, for identifying this little thief for us!). Yuck!
But that was then, and THIS is NOW! WOW!
The tomatoes to the left of the lemon and lime are from the little tomato plant in the pot on our back deck, the ones on the right are from the one planted in the soil on the side of our house.
I've been cutting up the smaller tomatoes to use in garden salads, and I've been slicing the bigger ones and having them on toasted bread for lunch, and we also put them on our hamburgers when Ray barbecues.
And last night we had this delicious appetizer before we ate dinner.
And Jayden has his own little bowl of appetizer because he's not fond of basil or sweet peppers, and he only likes olive oil as a dip for his bread! (Oh, and he had a few bites before this picture was snapped!)
And I've been asking a few family members about how 'Awesome' they find me (for the Awesome Award), and surprisingly my girls had some nice (and funny) things to say! First my daughter Katie said that she thought I was so awesome because of the time she almost died and I came to visit her in the hospital and sat and read magazines with her! Seriously?! That's the best she could come up with?! Oh, yeah, how awesome is that! Such a wonderful mother to go that extra mile and visit your daughter in the hospital after she almost dies. Big whoop.
But then she did have a few more things (more awesome things) to say. I haven't asked my sons yet but I will and I'll post either over the weekend or Monday the latest!
Instigator, if you're reading here, get ready to tell me something awesome! And spread the word to your brother Protester! I'll take care of asking The Quiet One. I promise I won't mention any of you by name, although the girls say they don't care.
