I'm looking into my crystal ball and seeing....you....standing over the sink....holding a lovely, thick tomato sandwich. It's sweet. It's dripping. You're smiling!

Vee said...

Ohhhh...they're looking very good. Another day or two... Hmmmm...

Ours are greener than green.

Hi Penny! Oh, I think that's a beautiful tomatoes! Wish I had a home grown one. I'm about to make a cheese sammich and a home grown tomato would just make it perfect!

Shelia ;)

Adrienne said...

Love seeing your tomatoes! Mine are still small - and green. Late start this year because of our reunion trip to Kansas in May. Hoping we get some sweet, red tomatoes before the first frost.

Your tomatoes look great Penny! Nothing beats garden tomatoes! The plant on my deck is doing great with lots of tomatoes but we're a few weeks behind you so none are red yet, but I can't wait!! Have a great weekend!

No veggie garden here, but a friend shares the bounty of her garden. Today ~ squash, tomatoes, peppers, and gorgeous sunflowers. ;-)

Don't rightly know. Can't get out there with my ankle. Suppose to be 110 degrees outside, so I don't imagine the garden is looking very good.

Kathleen Grace said...

So far only green tomatoes, but I think it's going to be a good crop! Our basil is amazing and we harvested our first zucchini a couple nights ago:>)
What kind of tomatoes did you plant?

Kelly said...

Hooray! I know what you'll be eating soon now. Ours just started turning red in the last couple of weeks and we've been enjoying them too.

Mine aren't very far along; the 2 bigger green ones have a while to go before they're enjoyed. I can almost taste yours!

Oh, yum! The taste of summer! Just beautiful image!

Lorrie Orr said...

I have one or two tomatoes that look a little less green than they did. A couple more weeks should do it.

Did your tomato taste as good as it looked?

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Your tomatoes are looking simply wonderful! They'll soon make a delicious salad or meal.

Beverly said...

My three tomatoes are quite tasty, and they cost me $5 at the farmers' market yesterday. Tasty and expensive.

Yours look wonderful.

oh my,those maters look delish.. I tended mine every dang day and only got 3 before it shriveled and died..

I watered and did the miracle grow but it just wasnt meant to be this year.. I guess I'll be visiting the farmers market over in greensboro.

enjoy every lushious Bite..

Jeanne said...

Mmmmmm, we did not plant a garden this year and I am so sorry now. We were on vacation and watering was a problem. such is life in our busy household.

Enjoy those tomatoes Penny.

This morning we woke up without a house full of grands. Coffee and quiet. A lovely combination. Smile.

Hugs, Jeanne

PS: I also looked at your previous post and the difference in your photos is awesome. I'm thinking seriously about this. Thanks.

see you there! said...

I have tomato envy! Our garden is finally coming along but due to an unusually cool summer I wonder if our tomatoes will ever ripen.

Elizabeth and Gary said...

OH not so good! Our tomatoes look so little and there are only a few on the plant. Gary tends to his little garden and I think his little garden might need some help..LOL
His thumb might not be as green as he thinks it is..(Don't tell him I told you this) Hehehee.
Henri sends his love!
Have a sweet day and big hugs, Elizabeth

Isn't it wonderful? Mine have been turning red, one by one, in such a way that there's always a ripe tomato out there somewhere just when you need it! ::Jill
