Tomato harvest

I went out to the garden yesterday.I found many of the large tomatoes were ripe enough to pick.I love red vine ripen tomatoes. But something maybe a rabbit or squirrel has taken a bite on 2 good size tomatoes. So I picked all the ones the were really close to red.
I harvested all the Barrys crazy cherry tomatoes. They have the taste of a fully ripe red tomato. They are now my favorite yellow tomato. They cluster in large groups like a grape. They are a one bite size. Next year I will plant many of these.
This is the total harvest about 6 pounds.. It it full of hybrid and heirloom tomatoes. I saved seed from tomatoes, given to me last summer. I am so glad I did. Some of these tomatoes are so big they are pulling the plants to the ground.
Some of the tomatoes are peach like in color. .
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.Photobucket

They look yummy. Soon it will be time for me to plant tomato seedlings. Hopefully I'll get as good a crop as you have xx

They look so good to eat. Would make an interesting flavoured and clouded soup too I bet?
