Traffic light tomatoes
Melbournia is heating up a tad, which means the tomatoes are really starting to ripen.
I love the stages they go through, from dark green to a limier, lighter shade of green, slight hints of a tint, then yellowish, to a darker shade of orange and finally a deep, dark, delicious red. And that is only my red cherries.
These yellow tomatoes should follow a different trajectory
And as for these black russians, well that will be fun to watch
(except i suspect that they will ripen while i am on holiday back in Adelaide, oh well, lucky garden sitter then!)
