Look at that tomato. Eggs (normal and Silkie) are there for size context. It’s very large. A Persimmon. They are so good. The surprise of the year. I was expecting a normal-large tomato, not one tomato the size of a loaf of bread! Meaty, and delicious. When the hens get a bucket of scraps, they pick out the orange persimmon bits first.
In the tomato fermenting pots, the process is rolling right along. Look at that scum of mold – perfect.Outside, the morning glories have come, vining up with the volunteer tomatoes. It seems late, but they objected to the early spring when I planted them. The rest of the garden is turning senescent and ugly, but the morning glories are beautiful in the mess.
