Tomatoes!! I didn't rip out the plants, although they still aren't as healthy as the TomatoBerry!
I really just grow the large ones because my Mom in law wants me to, I don't care what size my tomatoes are, but she really likes them, so I think I should be bringing her some, today!! It looks like they cross-pollinated with my TomatoBerry tomatoes!
Can you see the pointy ends?? So cute!
Here's another one! I will pick them today and run them to her. She'll be so surprised.
Until she reads my blog, that is! I think she's my biggest fan...! I was not blessed with a loving mother, so God saw to it that Cherie came to my life!
We have spent 20 years in the kitchen, on the computer, shopping and enjoying what each other contributes. She did not have a daughter and I did not have a mom. How perfect!
The other day she suggested to me that I print and frame some of my pics. I don't think I'd ever taken one I would consider framing, really.
But, I love Love lOve this one!!!
I don't know what it is about this, but when I finished running the editor, I loved it. I love the color green, so maybe that is the reason I am so thrilled, but the glorious pepper plants, how different from the finicky tomatoes!
Healthy foliage, abundant peppers, what a rewarding thing, growing peppers is!!
Peppers and cherry tomatoes for me, friends!!

I will finish the Deer Resistant bed, today. I really must. The plants are not doing well, sitting near my deck. They want to be in the ground!!
So much has happened, I would like to get a few hours to sort it all out and get a plan together, maybe after church tonite?
Right now, I am going to spend time with my son, who is home from college for a few days.
He looks ready to get up and dig holes, doesn't he!!??


  1. Hahaha--nothing like good times with our kids!
    He'll just LOVE getting up for that, I'm sure. Have a fun weekend!

  2. They do look great and actually quite healthy considering this heatwave.

  3. I bet those tomatoes will be delicious. Your peppers look great. Will you be making some canning any tomatoes?

    I think it is wonderful that you get along so well with your MIL. I have always gotten along with mine, too. I really don't understand whey MIL's get such a bad rap.

  4. Oh yes, your son really looks ready to get up and dig holes! LOL That's too funny!! I'm finally taking the time to come visit you, I was gone to spend the day with my mom today but now I'm free all evening:-)

    Your tomatoes and green peppers look so wonderful!! My tomatoes are really starting to change colours now but the green peppers aren't quite ready, another week or so should do it. The first thing I do when the peppers are ready is to make a stir fry:-)

    I'm glad to hear that you get along so well with your MIL...mine passed away quite a few years ago and I miss her, she was such a sweetheart.

    Your pictures are stunning and I agree with your MIL, you should frame some to display:-) xoxo


I would love to hear from you and if you can leave a comment, I will visit your blog, too!
