the Fruits of our Labor ~


...the 'volunteer' vine that is growing on our fence is revealing itself ~
we have been shown a glimpse of it's fruit but still can't decipher 
if it is a gourd or a pattypan squash…

beautiful huge leaves ~

 in the meanwhile,
it's neighbor, the tomato plant, is thriving ~
 due in-part to the shade that the volunteer vine is providing it…
keeping the tender flesh of the cluster tomatoes from burning in the full Summer sun.


hello in there!

this morning, as I was snapping pics
I heard a low buzzing sound…
upon closer inspection I found these two ~

nestled down inside the squash-blossom……


Zzzzzzzzz

  two sleepy little bees ~
...snoring the morning away.


wakey wakey!

here you can see how big the vine & tomato are getting:


sweet annie too!

and here is our first harvest of these tomatoes ..
beautiful little orbs of red, orange and yellow.


perfect

 just the right size to cut in half, drizzle with olive oil…
shake on some sea salt and cracked pepper ~ add a little mozzarella & fresh basil.
~ Y U M ~


Sweet Summertime

 their color is thee perfect shade of red to me ~ 
I favor orange-based reds as opposed to blue based reds…
my favorite red DMC floss colors are 918 through 920!!!

 ~ and 'knowing' what color i'm looking at & how is corresponds to my floss!
{{UPDATE}}
the name of these tomatoes is
"Sunrise Bumblebee" and heirloom cherry tomato ;)
