  1. I’d beg to differ – for people like me, words are clearly needed. What are they? 😆 I want to say it’s chillis in the middle, and are the bigger red ones peppers? They look a little different to the peppers we have here so I’m not sure. Gosh, how stupid do I sound!

    Happy Wednesday, Terri – I hope the week is going well for you so far xxxxx

    1. It’s so good to ‘see’ you Caz! These are the tomatoes and cucumbers I got out of my garden the other morning. The big pink-looking things on the outside of the basket are slicing tomatoes, which are great for sandwiches, salads, on burgers, etc. and the ones in the middle are Roma tomatoes, which are better for cooking. It’s not surprising you didn’t recognize them – they probably look a lot different than what you see in the grocery store. Those big tomatoes were named Mortgage Lifters because some of them get really big, and the vines are huge producers.

      Happy Wednesday and happy birthday to you sweet friend! I hope you’re doing well this week and are able to enjoy your special day. Sending love and hugs your way!

    1. I wish I could send you some – we’ve been getting so many we’re pawning them off on our neighbors. We just can’t eat them as fast as they’re ripening.😊

    1. I’m sorry to hear about your plants, Mel. I’m sure that record-breaking heat had something to do with it…. I’m definitely planning to make some sauce out of those Romas. I’m doing well, just a little under the weather right now. I ended up with a bunch of pollen on me during our walk on Saturday, so I suspect it’s just allergies. I hope you’re starting to feel more like yourself again. Sending hugs!

        1. I don’t blame you! I’d be inside in the air conditioning with the kind of temperatures you guys are seeing!

    1. Thanks so much Sarah! I hope we still have some coming in when you guys come up. Maybe we’ll use some of those Romas to make a chicken flatbread.😊 Sending hugs your way!

  2. From other comments, I see these are homegrown, Terri. We’ve also had a good crop of tomatoes, cucumbers and blueberries this year. And don’t homegrown fruit and vegetables taste better than shop bought? I think so, anyway.
    Enjoy your homegrown crops.

    1. Ooh…. I’m jealous of your blueberries Hugh! We have a couple of bushes, but we can’t seem to find a place they like. The first couple of years they did okay, but not great, so we moved them. Evidently they don’t like that spot either. I’d love any tips you have for me. It’s nice when things produce well, isn’t it? We just had yellow squash from the garden last night, and it was delicious. I agree with you that homegrown veggies and fruits taste better than shop-bought ones. I hope you enjoy your garden bounty too!

      1. Hi Terri, our blueberry buses are potted. They are in a shady spot that does not get too much sun. Maybe just a couple of hours a day during the spring and summer. We move them into the greenhouse just before they ripen. It seems to help and produces lots more fruit. We leave them outside in the winter as the cold weather helps them produce more fruit the following summer.

        1. Thanks so much for the tips Hugh! After seeing that yours are in a shady spot I suspect ours are getting too much sun. Since they probably need to be moved anyway we may try putting them in pots and setting them in a more shaded area to see how that goes. Thanks again! Hope you have a great weekend!
