Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Tomato Thursday


What?  That’s not a popular concept?


After years of no crop we almost gave up and didn’t plant any tomatoes this year.  Still…it’s hard to give up on the hope for fresh homegrown tomatoes.  So husband planted 6 plants.

Guess it worked out.



Katie loves tomatoes.  She heads right out to the garden to see if she can pick any for herself whenever we’re outside.  She’s feeling a bit put out that her dad picked so many for us.  If any were to accidentally fall on the floor she wouldn’t complain about cleaning them up.

She’s still waiting.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Yum!!!!!!!!! Fresh tomatoes are on my list of top ten foods.

    Chewy is like Katie – always helping himself to the cherry tomatoes.


  2. love the angle of the first picture! A dog who likes tomatoes, what a strange little girl.


  3. Look at all those tomatoes!!!!


  4. Homegrown tomatoes are good any day of the week!!


  5. Those are gorgeous! I planted just two cherry tomato plants…and I planted them just so that I can walk out and pop them into my mouth 🙂 Enjoy your Thursday!


  6. the real question is what are you going to do with them all 🙂


  7. Awesome! Tomatoes up the ying yang! Finally! Hahaha!


  8. We didn’t do a garden this year, but oh, how I miss fresh tomatoes! And Katie really eats them, too? Cool!


  9. I see sauce in your future, lots and lots of tomato sauce. I have a friend who gives me 2 jars of homemade tomato sauce and a hard slab of parmesan cheese for Christmas every year and it is one of my favorite gifts. Pretty tomatoes!


  10. Wowee! And I thought I had a good tomato year! Your crop blows mine away! I did plant fewer plants this year and I think that does help increase the yield when the plants are less crowded.
