Yes, We Have No Tomatoes!
It is simply unbelievable. While the garden is percolating along with all this rain, the tomatoes seem to have been frozen in time. Normally, I'd be into the second or third week of harvest - but this year, it looks as if I'll be waiting another 2 weeks or so until these tomatoes are ready. I know that heirloom tomatoes are slow, but this must be some sort of a record year. Fortunately the tomato growing professionals in the neighbourhood have been crying the blues as well, so I know it's not just me. And while I wait for my first toasted tomato sandwich, I'll have to make do with the tiny little black Wonderberries that I've been nibbling for a week and the pear-shaped cherry tomatoes that have just started to redden.
