My garden continues to flourish! The tomatoes are really starting to come ripe now, as you can see in the following photos. Tomorrow I'm thinking of making some homemade salsa to try to use up some of the extras, because we're about to be overwhelmed. We're also still getting loads of peppers, the occasional cucumber, and yesterday the very first cantaloupe!
Our counter runneth over.
A perfect Brandywine on the left, and the biggest tomato I've gotten so far this year on the right--a Red Beefsteak weighing in at just under a pound.
I love the gorgeous color on the Mr. Stripey. It's the big yellow one on the left with the pink blush. They look so pretty sliced, and the flavor is sweet and slightly fruity. We've had a nice assortment of varieties to try this year!
So I've had to deal with a few minor pests in my garden, small hornworms and some kind of little black worms that love to chew on unripe tomatoes and damage them. I've been able to keep both under control with close observation and hand picking, and I thought I'd make it through the season mostly unscathed. Well, lo and behold, the real pest and danger to my tomatoes lives inside the house:
I take all my tomatoes straight to the dining room table after I pick them for weighing and recording in my garden journal. Yesterday I turned my back for less than a minute and you can see for yourself what happened!
The destruction of homegrown tomatoes is punishable by death.ReplyDelete
The photo of parrot and tomato is hilarious.ReplyDelete
Marco is trying to look innocent! LOL!ReplyDelete
The look in his eye says 'Surely you don/t think it was me'ReplyDelete
Oh, that wasn't Mr Stripey that Marco got, was it?ReplyDelete
No, it was a Brandywine. My favorite, of course.Delete
Marco, so pleased with himself , like "what are you going to do about it?"ReplyDelete
Your harvest so far looks delish! A cantaloupe!! impressive! We still have little green marbles.
It all looks wonderful. Marco just wants to get his share of your summer bounty!ReplyDelete
Oh my Gosh! you have so much! I have a couple peppers, cucumbers, and eggplants. I think we're getting too much rain.ReplyDelete
Marco! You better go out and pick some hornworms.ReplyDelete
Maybe it's Marco who's attacking my Peaches! Those peck marks look very familiar.ReplyDelete
Look at that face! “What?!?”ReplyDelete
Marco will need to hire himself a smart lawyer if he is going to wriggle out of this one!ReplyDelete
Hahaha, I love his expression! Really as if he were saying, what?ReplyDelete
I am so pleased at how your garden is coming along and how much pleasure (worms apart) it brings you. Your first cantaloup, too!
Marco says, "What's your problem?"ReplyDelete
Quite a bounty...those photos still making me wish for a BLT. I've only grown cherry and grape tomatoes this year.
but he looks so innocentReplyDelete
He has the "no no no not me" Scotty boo boo eyes. Butter wouldn't melt, or tomatoes, in his mouth.ReplyDelete
And he stands there looking so innocent. What, me? I didn't do anything.ReplyDelete
Look at him! He's like, "What?!"ReplyDelete

Fantastic photo of my feathered crush, looking for all the world like a cat with that, "Who, Me?' look on his face. Dear god, I cannot tell you how much I adore Marco. He can lay waste to every tomato in my garden right now, just so I can get that face-to-face with the Most Dangerous Bird In The World.ReplyDelete
Hahahahahaha!!!! I love this comment so much! I'll tell Marco he's got groupies out there. Although maybe on second thought his ego is big enough already!Delete
