Been ill with flu this week, so today two simple shots that I took in the garden this morning.
Some cherry tomatoes (above) which we have been growing from seed collected from some particularly good tomatoes bought at Sainsbury’s earlier this year. I doubt the Lords Sainsbury had that purpose in mind when they put them on shelf but no matter. They are called ‘Vittoria’ and although there are plenty of young fruit, they’ve been taking their sweet time to ripen. I hope they get it over and done with before the cold weather sets in for good.
And some clothes pegs on the line. I know it’s only gravity at work, but they seemed so disciplined hanging there on the line, one after the other, that they reminded me of toy soldiers waiting for a young emperor’s command.
