From Garden to Garden

Many people I know have gardens... some small, like mine, while others grow so much they can hardly keep up with all the ripe produce erupting from the ground.  Because I have a garden and tend to hand make gifts, I think one of the nicest gifts someone can give is something that they took time to make or grow.  A friend of mine who has a lovely garden was kind enough to give me this very large tomato and two well proportioned cucumbers this week.  I sense a batch of cucumber salad in my future... I'll have to come up with an equally excellent fate for my little red friend here so I can appease my husband until our own tomatoes ripen.

It is HUGE!! Lovely salad, eh? Would LOVE to have a home grown tomato now...squirrels got to my one plant. :(

Oh, that's too bad Nancy... So far my tomatos have avoided consumtion by fauna, but who knows what the future will bring. Hope you have better luck next year :)
