First Harvest

After we moved to the new house and removed the chain link fence from around the backyard, Norm had the fence guys set a portion aside in the back corner of the yard for "The Garden". We had plans to plant all sorts of things and herbs... well, needless to say that our Spring was somewhat taken over by Benjamin's arrival, so we missed the prime time to plant said plants and herbs.

About a month or so ago, Norm bought tomato and pepper plants, parsley and thyme and started the little garden!

Here's Cali enjoying a nice stick. She's not allowed in the garden unless she is supervised, and even still you have to stay on her to not eat the plants.

Mello always enjoying that green grass and blue sky!

So finally last night Norm and Benjamin harvested the first little tomato from one of the tomato plants. Norm doesn't like tomatoes and Benjamin can't eat real food yet, so I had the privilege of eating the first tomato ever from our first garden ever (or attempt-to garden). It was delicious! The tomato plant is full of little tomato clusters and there are 2 more turning red that will be ready to be picked soon!

Here is baby with his little tomato in his little hands!
