One

John walked in the house this morning cupping this one lone cherry tomato in his hand.

Since our sunny days have been very limited (we're talkin' 5 tops in the last month) we thought our tomatoes would never ripen.

This little guy gives me hope. Come on sunshine.

I am a bit worried here too. Not much sun and lots of rain.

What an adorable little fellow...did you cut it in half and share it?

This gives me hope, too. I have about 5 green little globes hanging from one plant.

That strawberry crisp looks incredible!

So cute! We have lots of green ones but nothing red yet. Congrats on your first one. Hopefully our rainy weather is behind us. -Jackie

It's like a jewel. If it is any comfort, Lisa, you're way ahead of us Mainers. We've been under the same cloud cover, plus we're a zone or two north. Ugh. Enjoy for me too...
