sliced and yummy

This is a Brandywine. I took photos of a Giant Belgian tonight and hope to post them soon. This second variety is a new one for me and very much like a Brandywine but even meatier and bigger. I think I will list these two as my favorites, though neither produces many tomatoes. Quality, not quantity….

  • Oh that looks so yummy. I am drooling.

  • Is that a HUGE carrot in the background – WOW. All your tomatoes look great! I’m actually have a pretty good year for tomatoes, this cool august is slowing down the harvest though (it’s been getting into the low 50’s at night and the low 70’s during the day).

  • Kathy – I have been reading your blog for a long time – probably over a year. You are an inspiration and, this month, I started a little garden patch here in the Southwest – about 24 sq.ft. I found you by Google – garden + “portuguese water dog” – and bookmarked your blog. My Portie is a sweetheart, a 3-year old black wavy, my second PWD – such a great breed. Your pictures are fantastic and your efforts are greatly appreciated. I hope you are quickly recovering from the poison ivy – did Skippy get a special bath, too? Thanks for all your gardening hints! – Daisy

  • Congratulations on your new garden! I love to hear from someone else with a Portuguese water dog! He sounds a lot like my Skippy.

    You know that’s a real good point to ask about Skippy’s bath. They say dogs can give owner’s poison ivy. But I still find that he can run through it and roll in it and I don’t get it from him. Hmm. My mom doesn’t believe me.

    Anyway, he was tied up in my garden when I was weed whacking the back paths at the community garden. Poor Skippy. But at least he didn’t get into it.

    He DID get a special bath on Saturday at his favorite groomer. She made him look and smell beautiful!

    I should be better soon because my doctor put me on steroids today. She said I have a very bad case of poison ivy.

    And Susy, I’m glad you mentioned that big carrot in the background. I will post some photos soon. My carrots are fantastic. That variety is Oxheart and they are short and very fat. They make really nice slices, several inches in diameter.

  • Oh good. It is supposed to look like that.
