Summertime is pop-up storm season here in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia. I went out onto our little deck/balcony to check on Mater the tomato plant and saw that a storm was brewing. I caught a bit of it in the background of this photo of Mater. (If you want to find out more about Mater you can check out this previous post. You can also check the tag: tomato plant to see all of the parts about Mater.)
The tomato plant is loaded with tomatoes. We’ve already picked 3 ripe ones. They are rather small though and I’m slightly disappointed at that fact. I’ll never grow that variety again. Here’s another photo that’s a close-up of a couple that are going to get picked.
The tomatoes are smaller than a tennis ball but bigger than a golf ball, sort of in between the two. I reckon they’ll make good salad tomatoes.
Here’s a few pictures of the storm clouds that I snapped while I was outside.
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time ✌🏼
