First Fruits

There are now 8 kinds of tomato growing in the garden. They're just now starting to ripen. These are the black cherry, sun sugar, and redgold cherry tomatoes.

Only a bowlful so far, but I think there will be mountains ultimately!

Also harvested and ate some of the Painted Lady Runner beans. I forgot to take a picture of the pods , but they're over a foot long! I haven't, I confess, ever grown green beans before and I picked these because of their name and the little blurb on the back of the package--apparently they've been grown since the nineteenth century. It's probably not the best-approved way to choose your crops, but they are both beautiful and tasty and the hummingbirds like them, so I'll call it a success.
