I can so relate to you, Benjamin! Yesterday, I noticed my first red tomato of the season on one vine. It's not quite ripe yet, but oh how I've crowed about it. :) When I first noticed it, a couple of women were walking their dogs past our house. I saw that blushing fruit and exclaimed, "Oh, hey! There's a red one!", more to myself and God than anyone else -- they just happened to be walking by when I looked down and saw it. One of the women laughed and said, "I do the same thing!".

Hey there gardenwife, I must apologize for the late reply. It IS magical. I mean what we are doing used to be a way of life once upon a time but when this is not something we normally do, it is a wonderful, blessed experience. I reckon even those that grew fruit and veg year after year made an exclamation when they saw the first yield of the season. It is a sense of satisfaction and shear joy that no other person will understand until they themselves thrust their own hands into the earth and get something beautiful to come from it.

I thank you every so kindly for your comments and you keep growing and being inspired. Further, enjoy every bite of those home grown maters! Take care now, Ben
