Garden 2008- Vegetables and so much more!

This is my second ripe tomato (a Grape). Just after taking this picture, Mom picked it right off the vine and ate it. Sadly, no pictures were taken of the act.

Finally, the long awaited strawberries!

This is the smaller pot of the two.

This is the larger. If you look closely, you can see the starts of a few berries!

This is the giant so far. The Yellow Pear tomato is almost 4 1/2 feet tall. I'll have to get my mom to stand next to it (at 5' 2") so that the size can really be appreciated.

Gabbie loves the new cedar mulch.

Now, I do have other things growing besides my food garden...

The dwarf pomegranate (technically a food, but almost too small to eat) is blooming and developing pods.

The clematis is beautiful and creeping more around the fence by the day.

The scarlet magnevailla weathered the winter well in the greenhouse.

And... glory of all glories... the Confederate Star Jasmine is in full twinkle. At night, when the wind blows just right, I can smell it through my open bedroom windows.

Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up.
