~ Tom Tom ~


My neighbour and I share a large wild cherry tomato bush which grows on the boundary of both our properties. Last night I needed some for a salad I was making so I skipped over and grabbed some. The beauty about this bush is we have never watered it, weeded it, sprayed it or really cared at all for it, but every year it continues to produce the most sweetest of tomatoes. As I jumped back over to my house my husband took this photo of me holding them. Yum!
Happy Monday.

  1. Cute apron, Simone. I always write "toms" on my list for marketing. Next year I think I'll pot some cherry toms... I miss having my own.

  13. I am really envious Simone, they look juicy and so sweet. I have just picked my first for the season, wait for it, 3 little cherry toms. Yes only 3 so your handful is a feast compared. Isn't it always the way, the wild ones do the best in the garden, it's like our roses, we nurture, feed, water and pamper them and get so few but the neirbours across the road do nothing and theres bloom gorgeously. Maybe that's telling us something. ENJOY xxx jeanette

  16. Lovely photo beautiful colours. My son who is 10 has been growing plum tomatoes but they seem to be struggling turning red so we had to pick some and bring them onto the kitchen window sill he has gone to school this morning with one sliced up. Lucky you i agree with the magic fairy idea ours need to be watered twice a day ;-))

  27. You mean cherry tomatoes don't have to die at the first fall freeze and you don't have to replant them every year? That is fantastic. Oh to live in a warmer climate. The things one learns reading other people's blogs. Enjoy those tomatoes because mine are all about to die in the next month here in Utah, USA.
