this was our plant two weeks ago, getting big and beautiful, just wanting some sunny days- lots of rain this year-, to get red and juicy .
all red and pretty on the vine, we have had a wet cool summer not what tomatoes like but it has been dry the past two weeks and this guy finally ripened up. The plants have all been double staked cause they are so loaded with green ones they are falling all over.
our first pickins of the season:-) I was very excited, I love fresh from the garden warm tomatoes, so good.The kids are excited too, they have been the ones weeding and picking off the bugs, so its nice to get a result, and a yummy one at that.
I know its a very small harvest but its a start we have lot of green tomatoes on the vines so we should be over run with them soon, I am hoping to make some homemade salsa with them. This one is going to be sliced up and will be a nice little snack this afternoon.
Now if only my squash would do something seriously lots of yellow flowers not a single squash or zucchini.Oh well , maybe since its warmer they will get pollinated and we will get a few, I love making fresh zucchini bread, and having fresh spaghetti squash,
