the tale of the green tomato

i took these pictures in the first part of june, and i am finally blogging about it. sigh. anyway, i was hanging up wash on the clothesline when mallory came running up to me and said, "look mommy, a tomato!" yep sure enough she picked it. my first tomato that formed and i was looking forward to when it would turn red and i could have a wonderful garden tomato...sigh...

oh well...now i have plenty growing, but i can't help wondering if that one would have been red by now.

and mallory knows now to only pick red tomatoes, which she tells me every time we take a tour of the garden. "don't pick the tomatoes, mommy. we pick red ones. not green ones." and then she laughs.

and i laugh, too. now.

then i was going to make fried green tomatoes out of it. you can't let your first tomato go to waste, you know. and then i looked closer, and i saw the incriminating evidence.

it's a good thing she's cute.
