I've been very in love with my little container garden. I can't wait until next summer when I get the real thing. But for now a few pots will do nicely.
Friday night we had our first ripe tomato and it was a beauty.
It reminds me of one of the books I used to read often to Maddy and Mia - "First Tomato" by Rosemary Wells.
This, with that lovely basil…. well, it called for a little caprese. So my darling husband bought some fresh mozzarella for me to enjoy the first fruits.
The problem? I sliced open that bad boy and it was mealy!! Oh poop. What a disappointment. So the first one looked pretty but didn't turn out so well. Hopefully the others that don't look quite so fabulous will taste better!
