Beautiful Tomatoes.........Cherries.....(PHOTOS)

Funwithfood Aug 14, 2006 05:25 PM

I think I must be a "tomatophile".

In my continuing saga of "Beautiful Food", below are photos of just-picked cherry tomatoes from my garden...

Isis Candy...


Mike's Red Cherry

            I discovered that the SunSugar tomatoes which had split (from being on the vine "too long") had the best flavor, second would be the Mike's Cherry--volunteers from last year.

            If you could only grow one tomato plant, I would recommend the latter. It grows about 10 feet long (best over a shrub for support), and produces until January/February, a most prolific plant!

            The Isis Candy is gorgeous and tasty. The picture does not acutally do it justice--it has a pinkish hue with a yellow "star" eminating from it's stem--very pretty.

              I swear those leaves look like they're cut from felt fabric. Are you just pulling our legs? :) j/k

              Those Isis Candy really do look like candy made to look like tomatoes! Gorgeous.

                This may be too much of a digression, but I am curious about what sort of camera you used to get such wonderful pictures. (I'm a photography ignoramus, but I just would like to know.)

                  I was wondering the same thing.

                    Thanks, it does seem to be a good camera. It was a gift--was supposed to be the "best in the mid-price range"; Canon PowerShot A70.

                  Wow, you can even see the fuzzy stuff on the vines!!!
