Our two tomato plants have turned into a tomato forest–taller than I am, and spreading out widely in their pots.

Lots of little cherry tomatoes on both plants, with more ripening every day.

They taste so good freshly picked and warm from the sun.

The bees have been doing their part to keep the plants producing tomatoes.

There are a couple of bumblebees out there all the time.

Tomatoes make me think of Lulu, and how much she loved to pick and eat tomatoes. When I first started growing tomatoes I used to put a little fence around the pots to keep her away, but for the past couple of years I gave up and let her graze on the tomatoes she could reach.

Another memory: Sophie and Lulu together in the yard.
