teeny tiny toms

Teeny tiny tomsNow where was I?  Oh yes, the teeny tiny toms for Ann.  Don’t worry it’s not a tale of extreme eating and dining on drawing pins.  Do you remember the golden delicious apples from down the road?  When I returned Derek’s bucket he showed me around his back garden and I asked him about his spiky tomato plant and it’s tiny fruit.  He didn’t know what variety it was (he wouldn’t have had any tomato plants at all if a friend hadn’t given it to him) and he’s not even keen on eating tomatoes.  Derek's teeny tiny toms

Which is why they ended up coming home with me!  They were wonderfully sweet and each one popped when bitten.  I was wondering how to convey just how tiny they were hence playing around with drawing pins.  tiny toms 2 + pin

    Thanks Nic, those tiny tomatoes look so cute!!! I’ve never seen any so tiny, they are even smaller than the tomato plant I’ve got growing in a hanging basket, I just had to buy it for the tiny fruits.

    Ann – cute fruit definitely tastes sweeter! I bet they looked lovely hanging up

    Darla – me too and even then I probably wouldn’t stop. You’ll be pleased to hear they didn’t though

    Bilbo – it’s lovely to recognise a few more faces from the neighbourhood and I’ve been invited back next year :o)

    Jas – don’t feel bad, size doesn’t matter – at least you got some toms. Bet Matt was thrilled, he had sort of adopted them hadn’t he

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)

Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
