I have a small inner city place, equipped with a rather spacially restricted balcony. The latest obsession is filling this space with green delight and this blog is intended to bear witness to my feeble green thumb attempts.

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!)
