Apologies for the poor photography, my camera is being most unhelpful of late and is probably adding to the slight lag in blogging, but even fault euipment wont stop me today. Here is this week's harvest post and again it only means one thing - tomatoes!
Tigerellas, tumbler red and yellow cherries and one lone black russian that is cracked and ripening off the wilted vine.
Actually I have noticed a real problem with the blakc russians cracking this year, as I pulled another two from the vine with similar large cracks. Probably due to the large but intermittent rainfalls we have had this year. Last year they didn't crack because we didn't get any rain (if that was the only other choice I'd prefer cracked tomatoes and rain thank you very much) I gave a handful to my neighbours last night in an act of mildly inebriated kindness. They loved them!
If only the zucchini and cucumbers would co ordinate their flowering a little better, the boys and girls are still too shy to be seen on the bush at the same time. I certainly can't wait to harvest more yummy full-sized yellow zukes and to harvest my first cucumber. For more fun harvests head on over to Daphne's Dandelions.
