Generally I hate surprises. Really. I would rather know what I am getting for Christmas in October so that I can anticipate it until Christmas Day. Even when we go out for dinner, I want to know where we are going before we leave the house. Seriously don’t like surprises. Strangely, I don’t mind them in the garden. Unexpected events there are either bonuses or lessons and I am grateful for either. That’s why these little gems were especially welcome. I thought I had pulled out all the tomato plants I put in this spring in August when they got all brown and crispy. But I missed this tiny plant which really didn’t amount to much this season until now. I came across these tiny red cherry tomatoes when I was puttering in my cutting garden. I popped them right in my mouth straight from the vine – a bonus for not using pesticides. They were so sweet and tasted like the best part of summer.
For those of you who asked, this is a close up of my statue under my Lady Banks Rose. She is the Blessed Virgin Mary or as I affectionately refer to her, the BVM. It is to her that my garden is dedicated.
Happy gardening and remember to “bee” positive!
