Bye-Bye, Love!

Mother Nature's summer sun gold bounty was quite wonderful this year, but I fear the end approaches. Today, as I ventured out into the garden, I knew this would be my final gathering of these luscious cherry tomatoes that I have been enjoying all summer.

The lettuce was delicious, the cucumbers were plentiful, the early girl tomatoes were delightful; but it was the sun golds that, once again, knocked my socks off. Because they are so sweet and flavorful, I find that much of my harvest is eaten before I even get them into my kitchen. Now the leaves of the forlorn plant are withered and brown; and, though a few desperate hangers-on are still trying to ripen, this is just about the end of the line.

So, thank you and farewell. Until next year...

  3. oh i will def miss the tomatoes....they are my favs of the summer....looking forward to cool weather though...

  4. I'm sorry that it's ending for you but delighted that it's beginning for me. Light at 6am this morning, wonderful! And the smell of jasmine on my neighbour's fence a sure sign of Spring.

  5. I'm still waiting for my tomatoes to ripen. Please ripen. I'm so ready!

  6. lovely photo I love garden veges...I failed on mine this year. Boo ! tomatoes still possible but I haven't gotten a ripe on yet. I still holding out that one will ripen.

  7. How wonderful to have a food addiction that's actually good for you. I'm a vegetable lover too, and there's nothing better that the produce right off the vine or out of the ground. You live in a non-frost area, don't you? Will there be winter vegetables to tide you over until next year?

  8. Great photo! The stems look like little green stars. We are still getting tomatoes...yum : )


Please leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
