I'm so excited! Our San Marzano tomato plant has finally produced its first fruit. Isn't it cute? The plants are growing so rapidly that I'm sure there will soon be more fruit to follow. We finally had to tie them to their stakes to keep them from toppling over.
The cinder blocks we set outside are working well for our growing herbs. In them, we planted sweet basil, Thai basil, and cilantro, leaving our rosemary and thyme in pots. I use any excuse I can to cook with fresh herbs.
It's hard not to be outside all of the time with all of the plants. They make it seem so much more inviting
