One of the great parts of coming back from a long trip is how much your plants seem to have progressed in your absence. We were blessed with a very nice friend who kept our tomato plants hydrated while we were gone, and returned to ripening cherry tomatoes:
You may recall that our target for the summer is 60+ lbs. So far we’re at just about 12 oz, hopefully to be increased once a few of these guys start to ripen:
In addition to the cherry tomatoes, this past weekend we picked the first of our more “heirloom” tomatoes, a green zebra:
Upon tasting, I decided that this one had probably still been a little *too* green, but it still made a very pretty addition to our dinner!
