And yes, I almost typed that in all caps, because I'm pretty darn excited about it! Rutgers blessed us with his first ripe tomato last week (we ate it diced into a relish over the yummiest hamburgers Wednesday evening), and as of today, we have four more nearly ripe tomatoes on Rutgers. I'm pretty excited that Rutgers seems to be ripening before Big Boy, too, since maybe that means we're extending our ripe tomato season. Our herbs continue to do well and contribute to our suppers (even Rosie, our sad little Rosemary plant, has come into her own!), and J and I are just thrilled with the produce from our Earthtainers!
I hope you're enjoying fresh home-grown tomatoes this summer, too!
