Tomato Glut



I've just been in the garden gathering a few things for lunch.  My blueberry bush has been giving me a handful of berries every day for weeks now and the raspberries are still producing.  Apparently blueberries maintain brain function and improve memory; I can't remember how many you have to eat for that to work. Not many plums on the tree this year but enough for Paul and me.

Apologies to any gardener who is having problem with their tomatoes this year! It's a good thing I love homemade tomato soup.





I asked Rick to pose nicely by my trug but he just rolled onto his back and asked me to tickle his tummy.




His favourite posing spot is by the gate with his tennis ball.

  1. My cherry tomatoes are doing well, all the others are just drifting along.

  2. I do envy your tomatoes! It's the one thing my husband truly looks forward to from the garden and it is not looking good this year. I have always wanted a trug! Is it an old one? -Jenn

    1. I don't think it's particularly old, I bought it from a car boot sale for a couple of euros.

    1. I just can't cope with all the cucumbers, they don't make good soup.

  6. I was going to comment that your blueberries were huge, then realized they were plums!

  7. My Tomatoes are a semi-disaster. They looked so good as they grew to size, but there's very little on them. I have ONE Melon, and am now worrying about when I should pick it. Is there are foolproof method of testing ripeness (other than taking a bite)?
