Tomatoes Tomatoes every where :o)


Cecil and I are so proud of these tomatoes...they are rather small to be named "Big Boy" but maybe the name is because they are big on growing ..especially for those who have "Almost an Acre" ( I just love putting that in there :o)
So far I've put about six healthy quart bags of them in the freezer...they are small but very meaty and sweet...and Cecil has been picking a handful every day ...by the time they sit on the windowsill the next day they are so nice and ripe....I'd love to put them into a jar....but I don't feel up to fooling with that for now....I've got some more Watermelon Rinds on the way to be pickled....and my Pear tree is so full I've lost two branches from it this year...the Dwarf Pear tree can't take the weight of the pears...somehow the Dwarf trees isn't strong enough to hold a full limb....No matter ...the other one has a few and I know where to go to get more if need be...

Daisy , my "Almost an Acre" is a great producer....I don't think I'd be able to put away everything if it were really larger :o) the Green beans are almost ready..So I've got to have enough energy to do my part and put them away....Ginny
