Tomatoes

I've not had a lot of luck with tomatoes this year. I have three plants in the mini-greenhouse and they have produced about 20 tomatoes between them! So I was quite pleased when I saw that my cherry tomato Tumbling Tom, which is in a basket stand (about 4 feet high) starting producing masses of little cherry tomatoes.

Fast forward to a few days ago, when I kept finding my little Cairn Terrier, Maisie, playing with little green cherry tomatoes. 'Oh No' I thought 'the cherry tomatoes are dropping, they must be sickly for some reason'. I checked and watered and fed and hoped.

Then I looked out of the window yesterday and saw.... Maisie standing on her hind legs picking the damn tomatoes right off the plant.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Very true - hard to stay angry at a cutie like that.

Silly doggy. Our tomatoes are doing ok though not nearly as large or plentiful as I had dreamed originally. Our squash and zucchini completely failed though. Strawberries are also pretty much non-existent. Bummer.

I could so stay angry, cute face or no. Tomatoes are a serious deal in our house. I'll join you. Grrrrrr.
