For a few weeks now the tomatoes have been a good size, but because our weather has not been very hot this summer the tomatoes have been slow to ripen, so when the first tomatoes started to show a bit of colour it was time to get the camera out. These tomatoes are Brown cherry.
Over the weekend I picked and ate some of these yellow tomatoes they are a heritage variety not too acidic and lovely and sweet. I have noticed they are the first to ripen and don't seem to get diseased as quickly as many of the other more modern variety's.
What have we been eating from the garden lately? Rhubarb, dwarf beans yellow and purple varietys, courgettes which have been growing a bit weird this year looks like two stuck together, and now finally tomatoes.
Here are the pots of salad and carrot seed sown a few weeks ago, the lettuce will be ready to start cutting in a few more days. Next month I am looking forward to some new spuds, and we have a tree covered in pears which didn't have any fruit on it last year hopefully might be able to get some out of the high branches to see what they are like.
