    We’ve been in the toms again. We are feeding, watering and pruning them regularly now. Two days ago, we pruned and suckered hard.

    Do we dare to look inside the greenhouse? I can hear the wind whistling ‘round the bare cordons.

    Two days later I peeked-in and saw these Marmandas and a couple MoneyMakers:

    Whilst playing Barber of Seville, the Bride severed this oddball:

    We first thought something had taken a bite out of it, but with closer inspection, I can see that it was a sort of genetic mix-up— the peduncle/ pedicel and sepal somehow developed with the fruit.

    I am already having visions of salads, BLT’s, hamburgers and concentrate.

    Sjoerd ‘Barber of Seville’ :sete_013: He must have been one heck of a barber, according to all the red toms they are classical music luvers too. :sete_056:

    :smt041 look at those red toms they are husky reds hanging on the vines with lil soldiers of tagetes patula guarding the long tasty rows . :smt035

    Happy tomatoes , harvest time is closing in…

    Poor green tom must have been pressed into a new frankenstein version.
