We finally were able to pick our first tomato! You can imagine how excited Philip was to pick and eat this little treat. We look forward to the many green ones turning soon.

The highlight of our summer has been the Day out with Thomas! Only thirty minutes away, there is the annual visit made by Thomas the Tank and we knew that Philip was going to love it. For two weeks Philip was checking the calendar and asking which day was the Thomas day. We had the first train ride at 8:45 and so we left the house at 7:00 to make sure that we wouldn't miss our train. It was really nice to see the grounds before the crowds arrived.
There were lots of train tables which we visited many times.

Well it is definitely growing. We have lots of little green tomatoes and the peppers keep getting bigger. In fact, Philip accidentally knocked a pepper off of the plant and so we gave it a try. I spat my bite out and Mike ate his and was tearing up. They are not even red yet which is when they are supposed to get hot. However, Mike did try it again on some enchilladas and liked it very much. That is a good thing too since we noticed there are a lot of new blossoms sprouting.
