Well, that didn't happen. (Maybe next year?) But we did manage to pick up a tomato plant at Lowe's. It's been growing fast despite the heat wave, thanks to Cricket's new-found obsession with the watering can, which she pronounces "wah-CANE." I now have a watering can obsession because I love to hear her say the word.
Last weekend our first tomato appeared, and I realized it just might be the first tomato I've ever grown. So while the girls napped this afternoon, I snuck out to shoot some photos of the little guy. Even one measly, potted tomato plant can be beautiful in the summer sun. And it smells heavenly, too.
