Just a handful....
Look at these lovelies!
We have this little bowl and we fill it up twice a day from our tomato plant.
The large plants haven't started bearing fruit yet...but these little ones started bearing fruit early May.
They are perfect with our salads and for snacking.
We have to pick them right before they ripen or the dog will get them.
Yes, that's right.......not the birds.....the dog.
As in ONE dog...as in Ginger!
She not only eats the tomatoes but cleaned off our bell peppers too! We got two...she got something like 10! (All you dog lovers don't fret, she doesn't eat the leaves.)
But she LOVES her veggies! She is so naughty too....just watches you as you pluck them off the plant. I dropped one the other day and she beat me to it! HA!
Next year when our real garden is set, it won't be an issue because she won't be able to go harvesting.
