Our first batch of heirloom tomatoes! And this from one of our plants weathered over from last year.
(Frank can't wait for his first lick of salsa.)
This was the first year we grew strawberries (planted 2010Nov), and they have produced constantly since April. Even more since June - who knew they loved summer so much!
(Putting this one on my vision board.)
We had our fist wave of cosmos wildflowers since 2004! I think there is too much shade in the back garden. mmmmm...shade....
(Calling all butterflies!)
This year we grew zucchini from seed, and even under the shade of our huge pine trees, they're putting out nice fruit.
(Smiling big for zucchini!)
(First zucchini-tomato tryst. Hey you three, get a fridge!)
(This big guy was able to barter for a whole dozen eggs.)
Much to my surprise, our lisbon lemon tree even budded up it's first fruit. Pretty early, but I hope it's a good sign of things to come.
(Here come the lemons!)
Perhaps the best first of the season, was our first ever patio umbrellas. They have done so much for the garden already.
(Our first love - sanctuary!)
