We planted 5 tomato plants in May. Due to our altitude, which brings early and late frosts, we have a short growing season, so we select varieties of vegetables that mature quickly. (And, boy-oh-boy, the squash is maturing all over the place!) One of our tomato plants indicated it would be ready to harvest in 62 days. Today is the 62nd day the plant has been in the ground. And sadly, we won't have a harvest tonight.

Regardless…. we do have tomatoes! We have tons of tomatoes! On this plant, alone, I counted over 18!

But… they aren't ready yet. Perhaps they meant 62 days until harvest - if you like green tomatoes!


  1. Beautiful!

    Our garden has misbehaved this year, too.

  2. Our tomatoes lookmjust like yours.

    1. Hmmm… funny thing about that ;-)
      We need to have a blogger get-together again.

  3. Looking good! You will have tomatoes before long to eat!! :)

  4. I'd like to sneak into that patch with some garlic salt, some pepper, and some Parmesan cheese. I should have been born a raccoon I suppose. Or, maybe some mozzarella cheese, now that I ponder it. When I lived in Italy I lived off of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and fresh bread.

  5. ...if you bring the mozzarella, I'll provide the Balsemic!


What thoughts do you have?
