Tomatoes on the vine in the greenhouse yesterday morning.

Our first tomato ripened last weekend and several more are about ready for picking.

Our train trip post is still coming but today is food co-op delivery day, so we'll be a bit busy for the next several hours. The truck just arrived!

Tomatoes in the greenhouse?

It's usual.

Especially in July!!!

We're at almost 7,000 feet where the nights often get well below 50°
And, living under a pine forest, much of our yard & garden doesn't get full sun all day, including the greenhouse, but we still leave the doors & window open all day so it doesn't get too hot in there.

Do you remove the "suckers" off the vines to help them grow? I told my sister about this, she had not heard of it.

My favorite is an egg sandwich with cheese on toast and fresh tomato slices straight from the garden!

Enjoy yours!

Nervenruh is a gimp. You're living in great outdoors. Your tomatoes sure will have a special taste. An unpayable treasure.

Nervenruh thought at that height only goats nibble their brushwood.
