Tomatoes gone wild :)

I was about to continue with that unfortunately interrupted photo blogging diary when I got distracted by my father’s crazy tomatoes πŸ™‚ – I don’t know if it were the seedlings, this year’s abnormally high humidity due to constant heavy rains or some third factor, but tomatoes grew out of every proportion, some of them weigh even close to a kilo. πŸ˜€

Our vegetable garden is organic, tomatoes weren’t treated with chemicals or any sort of heavy fertilizers, but anyhow they overcame our wildest expectations. πŸ™‚ Apart from the size, they are very tasty as well, sweet and full of flavor, it’s a real pleasure to enjoy summer salads this year – they can be eaten even without seasoning, just like when you eat an apple. When cut in half, they look like some very special gigantic yummy heart. πŸ™‚

While naming these two photos, I recalled my old fascination with the name of this vegetable – in Serbian we call it PARADAJZ, which is pronounced almost the same as the English word paradise. I’m not sure if someone liked them that much that eating them felt like being in paradise, but these home grown specimens do have a heavenly taste. πŸ™‚

    1. Definitely, they are a wonderful source of nutrients… I wish I could photograph them on the spot where they grow, but maybe that will happen too some day. Take care, all the best! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you very much, they taste just as good as they look πŸ™‚ We could have had tons of tomatoes, but unfortunately the rains are killing them, in conditions where water can’t be soaked in any more by soil plants are prone to rotting, especially because they weren’t chemically treated. Nothing to do about it, nobody could imagine such a rainy year, we’ll enjoy what we manage to save.
