My first tomato this year .......

I picked my first tomato this afternoon. I ate it before I had a chance to take a picture, but here is a picture of two more I will be picking soon. They are on a potted plant on my deck.


The tomatoes in my little garden are still green, but I will have plenty to eat once they ripen. I have both regular tomatoes and cherry tomatoes.


I love tomatoes fresh from the garden. I can taste those juicy tomato sandwiches already. Now, if we could just get a little rain they should continue growing.

The gathering ..........

Today was hot (in the 90s) and it was one of those humid Virginia afternoons. It felt like July instead of May.


The local girls spent the afternoon at the corner. This is where they like to congregate, relaxing in the shade and catching any breeze that happens by. I'm sure they catch up on the latest gossip and tell some tall tales.


I like the lady with white on her face. She was curious as to what I was doing and watched me carefully. I think she wanted to be sure I got her picture.
