More vegetables!

I realise I may be getting a little over-excited about our vegetables but I have high hopes of our tomatoes this year. We're not usually very successful but this time, with dozens of plants, surely some will bear fruit that will actually ripen for once!These are flowers on one of the plants on 16th July . . .

. . . and these are some small green tomatoes on 16th July . . .
These are the same tomatoes today, eleven days later, 27th July . . .

. . . and these are on another plant! We have, potentially, almost enough for a couple of tomato sandwiches . . . ;-)
Of course, we were rather late in sowing the seeds so they won't have had the optimum growing period . . . (sigh) . . . well, there's always next year! I'll keep you posted.
Note how I've used a tomato-coloured font for this post . . . I like to co-ordinate!


  1. there's nothing like home-grown tomatoes!

  2. I agree, nothing beats home-grown tomatoes. Especially eaten straight off the plant.

    We grew them a couple of years ago and quite successfully. It was one of the few really good summers and just as well because I don't have a greenhouse and the plants just stood against the south facing back of the house. I didn't get round to planting them the following year but they would have been a disaster because that was the summer that never was!

    Enjoy yours!
