Harvesting Tomatoes


Yeah yeah Ms Duck Herder
It isn't the biggest tomato ...
But it is The Bloke's very first and he is
Extremely proud and chuffed.

Vine ripened.

As I am.

Love my paper daisies.
and my Kangaroo Paw


and my Golden Penda

Planted kangaroo paw a few weeks ago. Not planted tomatoes yet. We are wicked people. Meant to plant them on Melbourne Cup Day in Melbourne. We will be whipped with green tomatoes for our sins.

One year I lovingly watered and tended a huge tomatoe plant and got one tomato off it. But it tasted good!!!

oh my! that golden penda! is it fragrant?

we also had our first vine-ripened tomatoes this year... the 'vines' looked pitiful - just almost dead, but they made these delicious, beautiful tomatoes! it was enough to make one weep! i think the bloke has every right to be proud... the tomatoes do that to one.

Garden looking splendiferous, and I hope that you are threatened by a deluge of tomatoes!

I've had a horrible bug - in me that is- but will post about my vegies that small dogs can't climb into - I hope.

That blossom on the bottom photo is just devine! And my kids are still waiting for signs of tomatoes ...
