I hope you've reached the right place, and I hope that you're over eighteen. This website is for adults only. No, I don't sell adult toys or videos or anything like that, this isn't a porn site. But it is the site of an erotic romance writer.


If you're looking for a steamy read, long, short or in between, where the characters are all over each other, get down and dirty, than I can guarantee that you will find something here. I'm going to level with you, my erotic romances are explicit and graphic in nature, but they all have happily forever or happily for now endings.


Enter at your own risk!

We're Harvesting!


Okay, my daughter would say I'm officially a dork now. But we're harvesting! This is our first vine ripe tomato off the three little plants hubby planted against the side of the house. They're loaded and this year he's managed to keep the bugs and critters away by placing mouse traps all over, plus moth balls on the ground around the plants. Also, he wrapped the stems of the plants down at the bottom with aluminum foil to keep the worms away.

Next year I told him he should plant tomatoes and sweet onions.

I wish I had a green thumb! I'm SO jealous. I think mine's black! lol Seriously, my mother says that I'm the Dr. Kavorkian of horticulture : )

Sorry I haven't been around. I'm SO sick and I think I will be in the hospital very soon for my pain. I'll talk with you soon.

Love and Hugs!

Wow I can't believe you have tomatoes already. The snow has just gone away and hopeful the freezing weather will stay away also. We had our first nice week but I'm afraid to plant any flowers or vegetables until after May 15th as we have gotten freezing cold up to then in the past.
I wanted to say Hi and tell you I found your site from AuthorIsland.com

LOL, nope! We couldn't wait to wash and eat our first tomato. And boy was it tasty!

Those little tricks of the trade came from my Dad.

Nothing like fresh tomatos Peggy. They taste so much better, too.

Debbie Wallace said...

Oh Amy, I'm so sorry to hear you're sick again. I'll keep you in my thoughts and pray it's not the worst, keep me informed, sweetie.

Welcome from Author Island! Just joined them recently, what a great site.

I live in Florida, hence the early ripe tomatos. Our little plants are loaded! I told my hubby he should set up a stand at the end of the driveway and sell them to the neighbors:)

I can't even imagine tomatos here yet. It's so cold in RI. I'll definitely keep you updated Debbie. I'm on my way to the doctor's in a few. I've had THE WORST LUCK all week. You wouldn't believe it if I told you. But I guess I lose some and I lose some.

You did make me smile though...I was picturing you making a little sign with TOMATOS written on it like a little girl's LEMONADE stand...then sending your husband out to sit at the end of the drive way. LOL Thanks for the giggle. It was SO needed.

Hugs and Love
Amy

Glad I could lift your spirits a little, Amy. Sometimes it seems like when one thing goes wrong, EVERYTHING goes wrong, I hope things take a turn for the better for you soon.

Delectable tomato. Just love them grown in the garden. Lucky you.

Debbie Wallace said...

Garden fresh veggies are the best!They taste so much better, too. And you don't have to worry about what's on them or who's handled them.
