It's tiny, tiny, tiny and green, but BEAUTIFUL!<br><br>
I've never grown tomatoes before! And, my zucchini and cuke plants already have blossoms coming up! I am so excited!

Yay! I just got my plants in (I'm a bit farther north). I'm eating the last of my winter tomatoes this week - the plants are already gone. Enjoy your garden!

People! *claps hands* Come on now! We've been over this before, people in higher zones have to share with us poor mid and low zoners. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/disappointed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="disappointed"> You have a tomato and flowers and you aren't sharing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/disappointed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="disappointed"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
That's fabulous. I just realized something sad today, I grew up in zone 8 and did hardly any gardening. How sad is that? Zone 8 to Zone 5! Ah well, dh and I plan to move back west someday.

I'm zone 9, and I won't get a tomato until July...............................!!! If that, actually. We've had a March that's essentially a December. My apricots this year are not going to happen,,, bad weather. My almonds are not going to happen,,,bad weather. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the cherries. My cherries are swollen and ready to bloom, and yesterday ...wouldn't you know, it hailed.<br><br>
February and March were nasty. It makes me empathize in a bit more real sense all those people who make their living raising these crops. I grew up in an almond orchard, and as a child I used to "knock almonds" with my brothers and my dad. (If you're an almond farmer in these parts, "almond" is pronounced <i>aaaa</i>-mond. <i>aaaaa</i>like kitty c<i>aaaaaa</i>t.) But it wasn't until I was grown how I could see how 'techy' the crop can be when the weather doesn't cooperate.

It all equals out though, right? My planting season is *done* in June. In fact, most Mays arrive and fry everything in sight.<br><br>
Of course, I can plant again in August... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"><br><br>
And, I now have 7 tomatoes! Yippee!
