First tomatoes

And so it begins. I picked the first batch of tomatoes from the garden on Tuesday. They're small, but they are the first to ripen. If we're lucky, there will be many more to come. There are some mighty large green toms out there. Two of the yellow tomato plants seem to be suffering from blossom-end rot, but the other three show no signs of it.

We'll probably enjoy these sliced with mozzarella and basil. Yum!

The weather is supposed to be hot all week with highs of 33ºC (over 90ºF) by Friday. That should help things along. As July turned out to be zucchini month, August should be tomato month.


  1. Beauties! Have I told you about my cousin who’s excited because her tomato plants have produce TWO cherry tomatoes 🍅?

  2. Happy Tomato Month to you!

  3. Sliced tomatoes and mozzarella, my favorite summer lunch!

  4. Whoa, that is HOT for over there!
