While the previously flourishing cucumber vines suddenly seem to be struggling, the tomato plants have exploded in tomato buds (or whatever the right term is for new tomato growth). Claire and I counted about 12 tiny new tomatoes since the last time we looked a couple days ago. Most exciting is our first tomato, which has yet to mature, is turning red! It's also monstrous! I hope we're less than a week away from tasting the fruits of our labors (literally, in this case).
