The explosion of last minute tomatoes, mostly 'Black Russian' and some 'Orange Pixie'.

The underside of one russian.


  1. Lovely colors of these tomatos! And all diffrent sizes they are... very nice picture!

  2. They look delicious, and beautiful. Are you sick of tomatoes yet?

  3. vrtlarica,
    Hvala, a Drago mi je!

    The russians are quite good, tart. Not sick yet because I really had not too many this year and bought very few from the farmer's markets. But sick of the look of the plants!

  4. sick of tomatoes? really? how does that happen, marie? i wish i'd had the chance this year. enjoy them in my name, please.

  5. Your readers with late season herb and vegetable gardens may well find that they will grow more than they can use, preserve or give to friends.

    They may want to visit - a site that helps diminish hunger by enabling backyard gardeners to share their crops with neighborhood food pantries.

    The site is free both for the food pantries and the gardeners using it.

    More than 970 food pantries nationwide (including more than 20 in the NYC area) are already on it and more are signing up daily.

    It includes preferred delivery times, driving instructions to the pantry as well as (in many cases) information about store bought items also needed by the pantry (for after the growing season). enables people to help their community by reaching into their back yard instead of their back pocket.

    Lastly, if your reader's community has a food pantry, they should make sure the pantry registers on Its free.


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
