    I’m hoping I have enough tomatoes to freeze some homemade sauce. Right now I only have flower buds. But I did take and taste a few lettuce leaves…

      As yet a few flowers only on my tomatoes but hoping for many! We have had some baby-leaf spinach and took our first lettuce yesterday but it wasn’t really ready. We’ve had some strawberries but not enough in one go to do much with – except eat them like sweets (ah…candies to you?), I need more strawberry plants. ๐Ÿ™‚

        I tried strawberries one year. They just take up quite a bit of space that it is easier to get them at a farmers market. I suppose most strawberries (other than wild ones) are hot house… but some get to be huge! Twice as big as a golf ball!
