 I tried and I tried to get a better photo, it can't happen shooting blind
 I tried and
 I tried again, enlarge the photos and you can see some of them

I can see them!!! You need a camera with a tiltable screen!! Your poor back! The things we do for blogging! So did that tomato come from the center of the yellow flower? The crocus came up next door, but we may get snow in a few days. Hey, I see another post below, it looks frightening!!! I'll pop down.

Woo hoo! I'm really jealous now that you've got real tomatoes showing up! Just think how good they're going to taste one day soon.

WOW! Tomatoes already! We have some too but they are in the grocery store....

Looking good.I agree with ginny,a tilt view finder would be perfect.I had a camera with that feature and really liked it.
Blessings,Ruth

The Madsnapper took her own picture and didn't know it!!!!!! Wish I had a video of you bending all over the place taking pictures of those tiny tomatoes...

Congrats on the birth of some tomatoes... I love home-grown maters.... YUM....

Hugs,

The best one is with your face in it!! Oh, to find a mere tomato could bring this much delight! I hope you have a wonderful salsa planned for them~

Love these. The actually look like the photos I tried to take of my almond blossoms. For one good one I had 6 out of focus ones. The camera kept focusing on the background or I shot the sky or my feet. Happy tomatos anyway. Wish we had some.
The bread I used in my McMuffin post is called thins. I turned them inside out, buttered them and grilled them. I guess they really do look like pancakes...pretty tasty anyway.

Only a true gardener can get excited about those first little fruits...enjoy. You probably would like a swivel window camera...
By the way, I like the quote on your header...I looked it up and it is a phrase from author Frank Deford who is 72 years old...I guess it is tricky to give a quote attribute in a header, but you might find some way to do it.
best wishes!

Already tasting those tomatoes! Got a kick out of that surprise "tomato" in the last photo!

DawnTreader said...

I know the excitement... since I've grown tomatoes myself on the balcony... :) Oh it seems so far away still. No room to grow them from seeds inside and can't buy plant until mid May at least!

Ann said...

Oh lucky you. You have tomatoes. I wouldn't dream of laughing at you because you can bet your bottom dollar that if I had tomatoes I would be doing the same thing :)

Elizabeth said...

Congrats on your new baby toms! If I had them I would be jumping for joy too!

Snapper II said...

Those may be tomatoes. I agree they are tomatoes, no doubt. But in the last Photo I see a Potatoe head, he he he he
Got..cha

Wonderful new babies you have there girl. I can't believe how far ahead your growing season is from ours. They are going to turn into good eats!

I see them, you have baby tomatoes! I'm not laughing about the shooting blind, I've done that too. Something I did this past summer, I really should post those photos, is a mirror image. Just grab a small mirror and let your imagination guide you.

George said...

I like the last photo best of all. Seriously, congratulations on your tomatoes. Nothing tastes better than a fresh tomato from the garden.

srp said...

OK, what planting zone do you live in? Obviously either 10 or 11 for sure. The thought of tomato plants is all that is going on here. I haven't even seen any in the garden stores. It is February, the last time I checked... although if I remember.. February is the strawberry season in Florida... around Plant City.

I cannot believe it-and yes I'm jealous of that mater : )
