So, how does my garden grow? Me of the seemingly eternal gardening killer thumb, that is.
Well, I think I may have finally made progress on the turning-said thumb-green front. Oh yeah. I’m feeling good about it 🙂
See for yourself:
Tomatoes!! My very first tomatoes!!! I’m so excited. Can you tell?
I have so many tomatoes, I don’t know what to do with them all. I’m almost to the point of chasing random strangers down on the street and handing them a tomato.
I told you.
But I’m not complaining. Really, I’m not. I’m just super proud of being able to say that I’m finally a true Southern woman because the one thing that all Southern women are supposed to be able to do is grow tomatoes. And despite being born and raised here all my life, that’s one thing that has eluded me. But I can now finally join the club 🙂
There’s also Clemson Spineless okra that has just started producing.
If you follow any of our farm/blog social media accounts then you know I’m very much looking forward to one dish in particular. . . scrambled okra. Literally the best stuff ever. If you’re an okra lover, that is. If you’re not, then the worst stuff ever. Good thing I happen to be of the loverly variety. Ooh, and if you’re wondering what scrambled okra is (and there’s a good chance you are because I’ve been asked more than once). . . it is basically just sliced okra sauteed in a little oil. Indescribably good.
And as soon as I have enough to make a dish of it, I’ll be sure to share it with y’all.
Back to the garden.
