...Hello? Tomatoes? Can you Hear Me?

Yes, our tomatoes are spending more time dragging their feet and not enough time ripening up so they can be turned into bruscehtta topping, or passasta, or featuring as the top and tasty layer of an open faced sandwich.

I am reading other peoples blogs who have have tomatoes overflowing from their gardens. Us? Nope. Nothing. Nada. Nix. I keep telling my tomatoes that it is not easy being green, but they obviously beg to differ on this point. My tomatoes are developmentally challenged. They are running a different course to everyone else´s and developmental milestones are not applicable to them.

Enough, I say. Tomatoes, get your act together! Post haste!!!! I demand some blushing in the garden. I want to be able to post pics of your sun ripened beauty and bountiful deliciousness....I want to be able to taste your summery tang, but no. You just keep teasing me with the occasional cherry tomato, but you fail to come up with the goods. AGAIN. Show me some of the love...Please?????

Who knows, at this rate we will be eating ripened tomatoes in July. Yeah. Right.

Rant over.

Fried Green Tomatoes, anyone?


  1. I am having the same problem. I have 30 plants in and I have only had 4 ripe tomatoes so far. It isn't as if I am expecting one vine to do all the work. I think I will give mine a good talking to tomorrow as well!

  2. Yup, same deal here. Only a handful of ripe ones, but I see a change in sight.... unless the 40c forecasted in Melb on Sunday fries the lot!!!

  3. Then there really will be fried green tomatoes!!!!
