From this little yellow flower, a tomato will form. Pretty groovy when you think about it.

I hung on to the tomato plants, their little flowers glowing brightly in the autumn sun. I hoped the pea sized fruits would swell and ripen. The greenery reminded me of a summer once lost, a touch of the leaves released an aroma of what could have been....On the compost heap for you! We had a crummy summer, but spring comes earlier and earlier every year, and next time those 'groovy' little flowers are coming good....

Sharon If I remember correctly, you had a pretty good haul of tomatos this year - made my mouth water! Not I get to torment you LOL!!! Cheers Sharon!

Barkfoot The end of summer in the north is always so much more dramatic. The deeper winters grip the very soul. But those springs, they are a glorious reward for the hardy and patient. Surely next year will be better! :)
