  1. Beautiful fruit & photos!
    After patiently waiting for my single heirloom plant tomatoes (9) to ripen, squirrels attacked and made off with all but a few!!! These varmits must have a very discerning palette-all the "common" varieties were untouched...

    1. Oh my gorgeous! Thanks for posting them.

      My neighbor invited me over yesterday to take as many tomatoes from her garden as I wanted...and lemon cukes. I was in heaven.

      1. very nice images .... thanks for sharing! don't know where you live but here in Northern California it appears that our tomato crop will be a bit late due to early season rains, etc....

        1. re: gordon wing

          Mine were late here in SoCal too. But alas, they have arrived and were worth the wait!

          I tried "Evergreen" last night--perfect! Green varietals are always my favorite (Green Pineapple/Green Zebra) because of their amazing balance of flavor.

        2. This is the only time of the year that tomatoes taste like tomatoes. We've been having a field day eating vine ripened Texas tomatoes.

          1. Wow FWF-what a stunning selection of tomatoes! That's my kind of food porn. I love the green zebra ones too. I'm trying to grow a few heirlooms this year but luckily have the SM farmers' market to fall back on if mine aren't stellar. You've certainly got the homegrown goods!
