Ugly Picture - Beautiful Tomato

So I know the pictures are cruddy. They come off the phone and I must say I never used that feature before. I just had to show off my first large tomato. This is a brandywine and it is a good 20 days before I have ever harvested in previous years. Ate it tonight and it was as good as they always are. All the plants are loaded with them but may have ceased setting fruit since it was so hot for a couple of days. We will see what happens in the next couple of days. We finally got rain after 4 weeks of no substantial rainfall.

Here are some of the other tomatoes also. And these are the carrots that I pulled. Not as sweet as I had hoped. Any thoughts on the reason?

A lot more in the garden that is being harvested but the phone camera is just not cutting it.


  1. Oooh, that tomato looks awesome! Nice!

  2. congrats on your tomato! I'm still waiting for my Early Girl that's not so "early"!

  3. Your tomato looks great and your pictures are fine. The house sitter has been harvesting tomatoes like mad since we left.
