My tomato has a glow…

Yes! Yes! Yes!  One of my tomatoes is starting to turn red.  I am watching it as closely as I can to make sure the birds, squirrels and bugs leave it alone.

I am just home from garagesaleing.  Lots of fun. I got some really good junk, total cost about $5.  The day is perfect, checking in now at 77 degrees.

Nothing else much happening here in the heart of the midwest.  I hope you all are having a great day.  Stay safe and be happy!

  1. Oh that tomato looks so "tempting". I could just sneak right down there and run off with it. lol Guard it well.

  2. The mater looks great. I'm afraid I'll have to hide this post from SHE WHO SHALL BE OBEYED! lest she be inspired to go forth and seek out more "good stuff" to add to her collection of things she'll never use and most likely forget she even has after she uses them to hide more of my work bench and power tools.

  3. I bet that tomato will be as tasty as it looks! We are actually having a garage sale and it's supposed to be a good bit warmer here with the threat of some nasty storms in the evening. Lots of errands to run so I bid you good day my friend.

  4. 3 small tornadoes hit the centre of our province yesterday, a few farmers lost some buildings and some even lost their houses.

    That is a lovely Tomato, I hope your really enjoy it, guard it well.

  5. what a great looking tomato! i wish i could make you jealous again but photography isn't in the cards for awhile.

  6. You have seven tomatoes thought by the next weekend just right time for visit your home?
    I will bring her recipe the Roasted Chicken W/Sweet Potatoes which her favorite dish:-)

    We can give her cheers up that she needed badly.

  8. Good Morning Beth :-)

    If I was a bug your tomato would be a prime target for lunch.

    Have a great weekend :-)


  9. I have 4 little tomato's on my plants about the size of a quarter lol. I didn't get them planted very early tho so mine are going to be late. I went to a garage sale yesterday too and got Brody one of those cars he can ride in for 6 bucks. Pretty good huh!

  10. That tomato looks so good. And many more to follow. I never got around to potting any. Guess I'll go to the farmer's market that's close by.

  11. Wow Beth the tomatoes look great what a sight well done . I shan't be putting a picture of mine on after all , yours look so much better. Sheila x:)

  12. Now that looks like a proper home grown tomato and not like the weird pale orange ones we have here in our supermarkets!
    I'm having a jolly good catch up with your blog-I've been remiss in my visits due to a mountain of excuses...however, I am very happy to be here. Now, off i go for a preoper read.
    Warm wishes - especially warm to ripen your tomato!

    (¸.•´ (¸.• ♫ ♪ Yippee! Glad to hear that your tomatoe is going to make it after all... make it in between two fresh slices of bread eventually! You have quite the green thumb!
    Sounds like you had a good day out and about at those garage sales. You know what they say... another woman's/man's junk is another woman's/man's treasure. Enjoy...

  14. when you pick that tomato and slice it please take a picture of it before you eat it. that has got to be the most loved tomato ever. It is looking great! This could be the start of a yearly teeny garden. so cool!
    Blessings, Joanne
