Garden Harvest in Colour

I am finally harvesting tomatoes from the greenhouse! It's been a slow process this year. My yellow pear tomatoes died & I'm having trouble keeping the soil moist enough (really should have installed drip hose in the bed!) & the summer really hasn't been very hot or sunny. But I'm able to now harvest a few tomatoes a week from my poor plants.

This variety is a paste tomato - very dense inside with not much juice. I like that! I neglected to grow basil this year, but the arugula & marjoram in the greenhouse pair well with the still-warm fruit & it's a treat I like to have in the mornings while watching the ducks foraging around the veggie beds.
