A snapshot sort of Sunday

It’s raining again, but I’m not complaining! :) Less water I need to use, I guess!

The past couple of weeks have been really mild — so much so that I’m not sure I’ll ever get ripe tomatoes!  There are plenty growing now, but none are anywhere near ripe.

These photos have been taken over the past month (usually they’re photos from the last week, but I’ve proven to be a slacker this month at posting).

I ordered the rainbow mix of tomatoes from someone on Trademe, who I’m sure orders her seeds from Kings Seeds…and it looks like at least three of what should be full sized tomato plants are turning out to be some smaller variety.  Either cherry or small roma? Time will tell!

Scarlet runner beans are finally catching up to King of Blues.  I really like King of Blues beans better — even the smaller scarlet runner beans are a bit furry. They taste wonderful when cooked, but I think I’ll be better off letting them get really large and then shelling them, like lima beans.

Ignore the rogue weed in there!

Funky rock plant pictures!  I could photograph these all day.  Especially in the bright afternoon sun — the result is awesome.

And the lemon blossoms finally opened!  The day after Bloom Day, of course.  They’re so pretty.

Hoping you’re having a wonderful weekend! :)

    My tomatoes don’t seem to be getting close to ripening either. It’s sooo frustrating! I’m sure I was eating cherry tomatoes at least by this time last year. Never mind. The anticipation is just as good as the event in most cases.

    Raining in Ireland too. We are such a long way from having tomatoes…just planting the seeds now.
