So I slept in this morning. I didn't run. I am so disappointed in myself.

But to make up for it I went for a run this evening. It felt great to get back out there. I am planning to get up in the morning and go for a run, I am hoping to go to bed earlier tonight!

In other news, we are going to have hundreds of cherry tomatoes this year. I am almost giddy thinking of it! There are only 5 or 6 ready per day right now, so they never make it into the house uneaten. But I am excited for the time lots of them are ripe at the same time so I can take them to work for snacks! Mostly I am excited about the money it will save me. Tiny tomatoes are usually 3-6 bucks for 20-25 of them. That is pretty pricey.

We also have tonnes of cucumbers ready, and tonnes more on the way. Today we picked the small ones, I am hoping to make some pickles on the weekend. I love having lots of cucumbers. They are another thing that is expensive in  the stores, and we can eat one large english cucumber per meal.

We will also have around 50 yellow boy tomatoes. We have picked 3 of them already and they are very tasty. If I get overloaded with them I am going to try making yellow salsa! I think it would be neat.

We also ate some fresh carrots from our garden tonight. They are almost big enough to be picked!

Next year I am hoping to have a huge garden, and hopefully I will have more time to work in it. I would like beans, corn, more carrots and cucumbers, roma tomatoes, raspberries, and strawberries.
