Oh, my goodness...

Looking back when AoaAF was just a fledgling blog, I discussed my sad attempts at gardening during my first few entries. Surprisingly, those very same plants (well, some of them) survived and are still going strong. My Thai basil wilted during the winter and I thought it was done for, but I pruned it back and it rebounded in spring and is thriving right now. We've even added to our collection and I'm proud to say that my fatality rate has plummeted.

Nowadays, I can easily transplant newly-purchased plants without it turning out like a lottery for life. To further boost my confidence as a gardener (trust me, my brown thumb needs it), I bring the following photo:

Yup, we're going to have our own tomatoes this summer. Yay!

Yay, congrats! They're going to be soooo good when they're siting on your plate and still warm from the sun. What kind are you growing?

Maybe now you can add in some hearty herbs and some simple fruits!

Rayrena- They're Sweet Baby Girls and I finally read a description. Hybrid plant designed to have a high yield on a compact plant. The tomatoes are supposed to be about 1 1/2"-2" in diameter, methinks.

Garrett- Ah, we already do. Thyme, two basils, sage, oregano, and a little lime tree that's finally fruiting (the tree came with our house). The lime tree's looking great, so hopefully we'll have a decent harvest this year!
