After going on and on about planting seeds this spring and watering them for weeks, then watching them shrivel up.... this is what we ended up with. About 20 tomatoes. What you don't see is the all the money I wasted in seeds, and a whole whack of plants I bought after I killed my seedlings. They they were neglected but the tomatoes survived.
What you also don't get to see is the huge smile on Loo's face when I brought him outside in his pyjamas last night to pick our tomatoes. The care with which he carried them about. His yelling at Blarney when he sniffed at them. And all the weeks we've been watching them grow and ripen together.
All this excitement from a two year old who doesn't like to eat tomatoes.
