Some Are Growing, Summer Eating


This morning I plucked the orange cherry tomatoes in the photo from the limbs of Jo. Yes, those are tiny orange tomatoes. When the first ones ripened, I wondered why they weren't getting red. It's a good thing the short-term memory box of mine kicked in before the fruits dropped off their branches.

Led Zeppelin and Valerie are producing fruit, too. Barely. They're bravely keeping their tiny fruit going. I haven't been very good about remembering to water the trio, especially during the hot days. When I do water them, I don't promise that I'll be better about the task. I hate breaking promises.

The yellow fruit in the photo are Asian pears, which are from our small tree.  It has produced a big crop this year because of the winter rains. I'm picking the fruit as they ripen. I wish the Mama was here to enjoy them.

I'm sharing today's post at Seasons, a fun weekly meme hosted by Jeanette of St Germain's Blog. Please click here to join in and/or check out the other participants.

  1. I have high hopes for my tomatoes, though they aren't very perky-looking plants. We generally don't get enough heat here to grow them well. Asian Pears - what a treat from your own trees!

    1. I'm happy with the the few that Jo is producing and whatever will yield from the other two plants. The Husband's and my plan is to go to a U-pick your own organic tomatoes farm to get bags full, which I'll freeze and use during the winter.

  2. You have a pear tree, oh man that's so excellent. My grandpa had one in our backyard in the sixties and pears and mulberries were my fav snacks. Clever title. How are the orange cherry tomatoes, bet they're better than candy.

    1. The tomatoes are full of flavor. I had a mini-mini tiny this morning. Pow! it went in my mouth. I don't think I've ever tasted mulberries.

    1. Yup, Birgit. As yummy as they look, and they're not even at that sweet spot of taste.

    1. The plate sits on a lazy Susan. I thought it was a shame to let it sit gathering dust in a cabinet.

    1. Thanks, Jeannette. I get it from the Mama, who once planted five fruit saplings and named each one.

  9. Early harvest. :)

    We had 3 days of summer weather last month ... the seedlings are hoping for another three this month. Everyone is so behind schedule, we might have to cover them when the frosts return.

    1. This morning as I was watering them (yes, I remembered. Poor Led Zeppelin. I had to clip off a few of its very limp leaves) that Jo's tomatoes are ripening early. I can't remember what her species is and where I bought it. I may have to start taking notes.

  10. those pears look absolutely divine! How lucky you are to have your own fruits & veggies. Our soil does not produce much. We have a difficult enough time keeping the flowers alive.

    1. I'm grateful to the Mama for planting so many fruit trees in her back yard. By the time we're done with the Asian pears, the apples will be ready, then the persimmons. We are fortunate.

  11. I have some tomatoes on in my garden and I am hoping they go well this year. So far I only have 3 ripening away but hopefully some cooler weather helps the plants along. Those pears look interesting and I bet they are tasty.

    1. Asian pears don't taste at all like the Bosc or the regular pear. I wonder why they even are called Asian pears. They have a crunch like an apple.

  12. Those pears look especially delicious! Pears around here start appearing in the early fall. Yummm!

    1. When I was a kid, the figure-8 shaped pear was my favorite fruit. I think it was more so because the Daddy and I ate pears together during is morning break.
