PCR Olla Update: Tomatoes and Pollinators equal success!


For those of you following the olla progress, here are a few photos and notes from the weekend.

Getting close!
 
These are the free tomato plants from the "Preparedness Fair" that have been present in almost every olla post. I have been excited for a week now watching this tomato start to blush.
 
A welcome sight!
 
We are seeing lots of pollinators passing through - this one showed up yesterday.

Success!
 
Yesterday I reached in to check the olla for water and found this hidden and fully ripe tomato. This is our first produce from the olla planters. It was rich and wonderful. My lovely bride and I enjoyed the first fruit of the garden.
 
In the immortal words of some singer from Indiana, may "we cannot forget from where it is that [our food] comes from..." or something like that. May you find a little joy today!
