The photos above were taken on September 30th and October 7th. This is Week Thirtyone -and there aren’t any tomatoes to take photos of. So Growing Tomatoes 2012 really stops at Week Thirty. Which is a nice round number. But shame it wasn’t a year for lots of nice, round, red or any other shaped or coloured tomatoes.
I’ve enjoyed picking the tomatoes I’ve grown. There really is something unique to picking and eating what’s been grown by you, on your own “land” – whatever that land maybe! Even if some years – like this year – it’s a very meagre crop. It may have been an odd year – but it would be odder still with no homegrown tomatoes.
