Tomato and Cucumber Time!

It’s time, our Tomatoes and Cucumbers are finally ripe and ready to be piked! It’s been such an exiting summer following how our plants started out as such small little sprouts or seeds, and how they have grown into huge plans producing more Tomatoes and Cucumbers than what we could ever eat by ourselves! Nature is just fantastic!

However, we are not the only once here in the neighborhood that has been growing Tomatoes and Cucumbers, because we keep getting the most wonderful gifts delivered to our door!

This picture was taken a few days ago as I got home from a long walk and found 5 Cucumbers waiting for me on my bench!

5 huge Cucumbers from the neighbor across the street!

These Tomatoes were given to us from our other neighbor from the other side of the street! Beautiful Tomatoes that smells so good!!

And these Tomatoes I just picked from our own garden!! These are normal Tomatoes, yellow Tomatoes and Cherry Tomatoes. The Cherry Tomatoes tastes so sweet, they are just perfect for a big salad or a great self made pasta creation! Mmmm… 🙂

And this is a picture from my kitchen right now! We have way too many Tomatoes, Cucumbers and Chilies for the two of us, but this is also the such a great gift to be able to share with our friends here.

We have so many Chilies that are just about ripe and I was told that I should bring them inside, hang them up to dry and them make chili spice mix out of them later in the fall.

Just so amazed by what our little garden has been able to produce for us!! This makes all the hours of gardening all worth it!!

    You’re just going to have to eat more tomatoes – haha. Reminds me of a this story:

    A man from the city visited his relatives who lived in a small town. He noticed that they never locked their car when the ran errands, so was surprised when they carefully locked their car in front of the church on Sunday morning. When asked how come, the relative answered, “If I don’t lock the car, there will be vegetables in it when we come back.”

      That is so cute!! And I that’s kind of how I feel! We have been producing such great vegetables ourselves, but that doesn’t stop every neighbor we have from thinking that we need more!:) But then again, it’s also so very sweet of them all to share with us!

      Thank you Dad!!:) I’m sure I have picked more than a hundred Cherry Tomatoes by now! It’s just amazing how these plants keep producing more and more tomatoes!

    You could make chutney! You’d already have lots of Christmas presents then! And/or tomato soup/sauce to freeze it. Then you can enjoy delicious self-made sauce/soup from your own garden even in winter-time!

      Thank you for the great idea! My tomato plants keeps filling themselves up with new ripe tomatoes everyday and I have given many of them away, but it would be so much fun to make something out of them too!

    We are eating a ton of tomatoes in sunny CA today as well. I didn’t plant cucumbers!!

    • misscrk says:

      You should try planting cucumber too, it’s really not that much work! After planting them, all I did was to give them something to grow along, because they grow on a vine and then of course keep watering them! Mine has grown amazingly fast and are now huge, and they keep producing great cucumbers!:)
