    I have flowers but no fruit yet. I have grown tomatoes in the past but they have always got blight so this year I have put them into a small lean-to greenhouse. It just takes 4 plants. As we have had very little sun this year and the nights are quite chilly I am not sure that I will get any fruit. So thank you for sharing yours with me!

    Best wishes Sylvia (England)


    I like your new header! I am getting just a few tomatoes each day! I can't wait for the deluge! Zinnias have those interesting centers with more tiny little flowers!

    Sylvia -- I don't know if I would be able to nurture tomatoes along without the promise of fruit. You're a better woman than I am!

    Layanee -- Thanks, I wasn't sure if anyone would notice the new header. Not sure if I am 100% happy with it. I may have to play some more or come up with a different image instead.


    Heather, I really like the new header, too! It makes me hungry. :)

    Speaking of hungry, you can pretty much harvest those purple peppers any time you want. You know how the red and orange peppers turn sweeter, the redder/oranger they are? Purples aren't like that--they pretty much just taste like green peppers no matter how purple they are. I found this out the hard way after I planted some of those "for" my boyfriend who prefers the sweeter kinds to the green ones. D'oh! :)

    Kim -- Bummer! I like the sweet peppers so much better. I guess these will be cooking peppers then. The header photo is from last year and it's making me crave tomatoes even more than I already was! I have to admit that I pretty much ate all the ripe cherry tomatoes right off the plants today.


    Thanks for the link, glad you enjoyed it! Your tomatoes look fantastic and loaded. One of my plants has produced three big ones, and that's all I'm getting from it. The other is loaded with lots of tiny tomatoes, but it'll be a while before I can eat any of them.

    Virescent -- You're welcome, it was hysterical and totally in need of a link. Tomatoes are like that I'm afraid. They tease a lot!
