Random ramblings from the cluttered brain of a Brit ex-pat North Devonian trying to keep cool in the steamy summers and warm in the frosty winters of The Great White North.
What's better than a tomato from the garden?
Our tomato plants are a bit snarky this year.....pretty sad in fact.
If you have some bacon, and some mayonnaise, and some lettuce and some bread - ah, you have something truly fine.
tomatoes! nice shot!
Lucky you. I will take a pic soon of the entire pickings of my tomato bushes!
There is nothing like Fresh Tomato's fron your own garden....Lucious and so truly truly fresh! Enjoy your Breakfast today...!
Fried green tomatoes...a BLT is always good Yummm..
I love the smell of tomatoes fresh from the vine, a little sprinkle of salt and ummmmm!
Your toms are looking good, and the plants look really healthy. It's a different matter this side of the Atlantic - the very wet weather has been pretty disasterous for growing tomatoes.
Because of the three month drought here and us watering, all the people who have tomatoes out are saying the ones they get are very small about the size of a golf ball. I know our tomatoes are Better Boy and they are also small. You r tomatoes seem to be of a normal size.
REPLY ALL:These tomato plants were planted in last year's compost heap and I've been watering them regularly, so that's why they look so good. And they are so sweet to eat. A thousand times better than those tasteless pink lumps we get imported from Mexico the rest of the year.And yes, Craver, for breakfast! Just add a slice of bacon, an egg, some salt and pepper and a slice of toast.... can't beat it!
And I spy tomoatoes to add to the growing list of edible goodies. We've had none this year so far due to a very wet summer. Last year, however, we had them until the end of December. There's nothing like a home-grown tomato.
I just picked a ripe tomato like this from my MIL's vine in Atlanta this past Saturday, Ex-S. It was a thrill! :)
Love a fresh picked homegrown tomato
