the odessea of tomatoes

i didn't have a big harvest, but just enjoyed the tomato plants anyway. i loved the ones we were able to pick and eat. in order to have them again next summer, i decided to try harvesting the seeds. it should work as it is an heirloom tomato.
and never the less, doing the washing and sorting the seeds, i enjoy the wonderful color those veggies provide. it's so fully red and strong in pigment, that i forget the tiny harvest...

well i put the seeds into the soil way too late and in switzerland, we just are geographically located too far north. the season is short and my plants were not strong enough early in summer. they carry some fruit right now, but those tomatoes will stay green... it has not been a summer with great plants and big harvests since i moved back to switzerland. and still i try every year, i can't go without trying and i shall not forget to put the seeds into the soil in early march next year, to have the plants ready by mid may and not mid june like this year. big fat note to myself!
