We got our first ripe tomato off the vine today! Pulled it right off, sliced it from top to bottom and devoured it with a dash of salt. The garden is now officially fruitful.
I'm also seeing bright yellow petals on the sunflowers, very developed ears on the corn and some bulbs on the pumpkin vines. Huzzah!
Phase II: Richard planted bell peppers, carrots, snow peas and spinach recently and we're just beginning to see their little sprouts. I am thoroughly impressed.
