Tomato Haiku

Raised from seed, every single one survived. How could I throw any away??

Looking hopeful

Hunter, Gatherer

Finishing ripening on the picnic table

Ready for the canner

Here we go again

All have sealed. Yea!!!

I think it was Kim's blog, Consider it Pure Joy , that used Haiku some months ago. It was so much fun. So, if you have any gardening Haiku of your own, be sure to share it in a comment!  We'd all love to read it! :-)
Here are a couple of my lame (trust me, I came up with even worse ones!) tomato Haiku offerings:

Tomato Canning
Pick them, cut them, put in jars
Shelves of gorgeous red


Plant with many hopes
Dreams of Deep red, seedy fruit
Reality: blight

I'm a new follower too! I have a book/running/life blog (and run an online book club) if you are interested in stopping by.

I hope I have the opportunity to learn to can someday. I'm envious of your garden! Moving this year, I wasn't able to have one plant but I'm looking forward to next summer.

Congratulation on your new grandson's entry into the world. Hug him! :)

Have a great week!

Great photos of the tomatoes and I love the haiku! I recently posted some of my own: post-vacation haiku. If you stop by, be sure to read the comments, as some of my readers added haikus of their own.

We can't grow them here
Your tomatoes are gorgeous
Our weather is too cold. :(

We have to get our tomatoes and corn east of the mountains. No matter what kind of tomato we've tried, they all turned into green cherry tomatoes......

Love the looks of those canned tomatoes my friend and also the haiku. The last one was funny! I wasn't sure you were home yet but then I seen 'the gatherer' pic. Glad you are back. :D

Debra Hawkins said...

That's it! I am moving in next door. That all looks amazing. My little one loves tomato! She will eat one like an apple if I let her!

Unknown said...

Lovely! I have to admit that my own personal tomato season this year has me not wanting to see red for quite some time...lol!
