harvesting veggies

He likes to select his own fresh fruit and veg these days. Apples are a given, oranges, bananas and strawberries sometimes get a look-in. Other than that, it's unpredictable.

Early each morning, I have a quiet potter around the garden, to say good morning, pull a few weeds and pick any tomatoes that have started to change colour. This is 2 days' worth! Our tomatoes have been growing themselves quite adeptly this season. We didn't plant any, but (thanks to amazing compost) they have popped up ALL over, and even though I gave away LOTS of seedlings, we've still ended up with a bountiful crop. It also helped when a friend showed me which bits to pull off, to encourage more flowers/fruit to grow.
