Tomatoes!

Have I mentioned that I like growing my own food?

I tried raising a bunch of vegies from seed this summer, but the possums took too many of the tender young seedlings (even the new rhubarb shoots!). At least the tomatoes reached maturity quickly enough to escape grazing. Right now the plants are laden with green tomatoes. I grabbed these two beauties (the first ripe ones) before the possums could find them.

I’m looking forward to plenty more, we could never have a glut of tomatoes because there is always tomato salsa to make and share with friends.

Grown with rainwater, home-made compost, a little seaweed fertilizer and plenty of sunshine, pretty resource efficient!
