Amazing Tomatoes!

Three days of rain coaxed our heirloom tomato blossoms into half a dozen new tomatoes! Such a simple little thing but I'm so happy about the possibility of fresh tomato sandwiches for another month. The actual vine is a beast! Not our prettiest tomato vine ever but when it comes to producing new branches and flowers it is prolific.

Topher was in the garden with me as I took these photos. Here you can see him sitting in one of our empty raised beds (and looking for the neighbor's cat). It's a mess now but all summer it was full of cucumber vines. We plan to replenish the soil before our fall/winter planting. Then we'll probably fill it with lettuce, kale and maybe broccoli.

  1. Thank goodness I live a block away from the Fox and Obel gourmet grocery store...that sells heirloom tomatoes or, otherwise, I would ???? I don't know. But I do know that everyone who has visited me loves that store. It's the closets I am going to get to a home grown garden!! (until I move into the attic...)
