harvesting sunshine

The sunny days have been few and far between this summer.
Cherry tomatoes have popped up everywhere. Absolutely everywhere.
I haven't the heart to pluck out these healthy plants - God does the best job when plants self sow. I don't seem to have much success when I plant seeds.
And the best thing about these little beauties is they don't need spraying for fruit fly.
We've used them a lot in cooking and even made a batch of tomato sauce.
One feels quite virtuous transforming produce into food.
I must say though, I don't love standing in the kitchen for long hours "dealing" with produce.
I'm quite happy to share with the wildlife.
Red and green apples have also been abundant in the orchard this year.
I must admit, I've let the parrots enjoy most of them.
But there's plenty for everyone!
