Gayle and I love eating fresh, homegrown tomatoes. Our plants have been producing fruit for a few weeks now. We’ve been enjoying the cherries and grapes a lot. These are the first two big boys that weren’t found rotting on the vine. The top one’s an heirloom, tbh I don’t recall the other’s variety. Picked fresh this morning. When I go out later for my afternoon tea I’ll probably return with more.

What are you folks growing? Edible.

Mmm, tomatoes with a little fresh mozzarella. Nothing better.

Absolutely! Got Roma tomatoes, green peppers, spinach, potatoes and pole beans. Been canning or freezing every weekend.

Next year will be more cucumbers to make some more sweet dills and not sure what else yet.

we stopped planting tomatoes and beans 2 years ago, this summer the vines appeared by themselves!

off topic - we did plant all sorts of sunflowers and they are doing fine

Also wistfully looking at the tomatoes. I live in an area with enough bunnies, foxes, and raccoons such that I’d be operating an open-air restaurant Biggrin

One of the reasons I didn't this year .. the wabbits are especially plentiful and the deer are beheading some flowers
