Mr. Big

July 25, 2012

For breakfast this morning, this beautiful Pineapple Tomato.  Every gardener wants to grow 2 pounders and this one weighed in at 1 lb. 7 oz.  Close.  We are getting close.

Mr. Big is beautiful on the inside too!  Hot yellow-gold slices streaked with hot orange.  The taste lived up to it's Pineapple name, it was slightly sweet and fruity, yet tart too.  We're having a party this weekend and I know a large platter of sliced tomatoes will be on the buffet table.

Here are some other hot orange and yellows in the garden this morning.  Nasturtium reseeds itself among my veggies.

Pattypan squash looks so pretty with it's flower bouffant.

Have a wonderful week!
