First tomato!

No surprise, it was a Sungold.

I didn't get a chance to take a picture, but here's where it was ...

Sadly, I didn't get to pick it or eat it either. That honor went to junior gardener Bink ...

I've already threatened to send her to the pound if she does it again. I don't think that will stop her though. During the summer, she frequently comes inside smelling like tomato leaves with yellow streaks of pollen on her head. My wife built a fence around the East bed this year to keep the dogs out, but I think she was able to reach over for this particular low-hanging fruit.

Please explain to Bink that we need the 'maters for Guff Shores, so lay off!!

She's cute enough to deserve a tomato or two. We used to have a wire fox terrier too. She was with us for 16 years and was a bundle of fun all the way to the end.

Out in the garden today I saw her reach up with one paw and swat a ripe tomato to the ground. if I could train her to fetch them instead of eat them, we'd be set.
