Proud father

I've been watching them for days. Like an expectant father, I've hovered. Each time I went by, I said soothing words. I coaxed. I bragged. I ask Mother Nature for her special favors.

Then a few days ago it started. It was unnoticeable at first, at least to the casual observer, but I saw it. A subtle change in the mornings before the due had a chance to join the larger cause...which was to make the air drinkable.

Then today, it was time. Of course, I had to document it with a picture. If I could have gotten low enough, I would have taken a selfie with them. But I decided, they could stand on their own.

Our first tommy toe tomatoes.


  1. Yum. With more of those sweet jewels on the way.

  2. Wow! I love tommy toe tomatoes. Looks like a salad for you in a few days.
