small harvest

Small Harvest, originally uploaded by &Naomi.

I'm quite chuffed with this little harvest of tomatoes. This is by no means the whole of it - just a small bunch I was able to pick and carry up to the house in my hands. There are many more to come, just waiting on the vines.

The tomato plants came up in the garden all by themselves; I didn't plant a single one. A couple of weeks ago I found the packet of tomato seeds I'd bought at the end of winter, lying unused and completely forgotten on the floor of the big shed. The plants which produced the tomatoes above were all self-seeded, most probably from the compost I lovingly mixed and hoed into the garden beds. I did a top job spreading that compost out. The plants are everywhere.
