Let me start out by saying ..... my hubby and I both have black thumbs. We joke about my ability to kill a cactus plant!!!
We decided to try and turn that around this year .....

Hubby got to work and built me a raised bed. He did an awesome job on it.

We planted 3 varieties of tomatos, beets, carrots, onions, green peppers and beans. We then lovingly tended our new veggie patch. We got very excited when the first shoots sprouted ...

Yesterday I harvested our first Big Beef tomato, amid much excitement ...

Just perfect .... nice and firm, not too squishy, a lovely color:-D

This morning, I ate some of it for breakfast .... it passed the taste test with flying colors .... delicious!!!

I'm beginning to think that we can do this after all!!!


  1. we do tomatoes each year....but this year I did lettuce...and it was amazing. You need to add that to your plan. Can't wait to hear of the rest of your harvest!

  2. Yum...I'll come down and taste the other half of it!
