Tomato time!

After a week away, I arrived home to find my two Sun Gold cherry tomato plants full of deliciously sweet and ripe little tomatoes.  There were enough tomatoes to satisfy us — well, only for a couple days, but it was a really great two-day run!

That made a mighty fine lunch

    Ahhhhh Sungold tomatoes. My very favorite. Most of mine get eaten on the walk back from the garden. Yes! Let’s plant lots more next year.

    My motto: always plant more tomatoes!

  3. I love the colour of these tomatoes! We don’t get them here in Turkey. It would be nice to have yellow and red together ..anyway, yummy!
