the final haul of tomatoes

After the heat being on in the house for a week and a few nights close to or at freezing I decided on Thursday it was time to clean out the front bed. An hour later, into the dark and four big bowls of goodies later I ended up with all of this. This morning I sorted through all of it and tried to get the dirt off it as best as I could. We have a lot of tomatoes and peppers to eat and quite a few that will get green over the next few weeks! My mom told sometimes you can have homegrown tomatoes at Christmas, wouldn't that be cool?

I think I'll be making these sunovendried tomatoes soon. yum!

Some things I learned from tomato-ing this year:
Trim the plants back as they grow, even though there might be a smaller yeild that yield will probably be tastier and grow quicker.
We're not really fans of beefsteak tomatoes. Variety.
Be ready to stake peppers and tomatoes as the grow.
Use bigger tomato cages.

I loved watching elise's backyard garden this year. Lots of inspiration, none of tomatoes were ever this red!

our day in one year

One year from today (the date, not the day) I will be marrying my best friend, my love. I am so, so geeked!

We'll be tying the knot here, the Bay City Country Club:

With Bryan & Mae to document the day.

Sometimes our day is the only thing I want to think, talk about, look for inspiration for and plan. I'll probably be sharing some of our planning process and lots of APW links.

Our next step is to talk food, invitations and flowers.

Get geeked along with me, won't you?! ;) 365 days
