Ripe volunteers

Volunteer tomatos in the weeds.

It's been a good year for volunteer tomatoes.

Usually they don't make it past the green stage before the first frost date but for some reason this year a few plants are old enough to ripen and eat.

I love volunteers. This year I had volunteer yellow pear tomatoes and dill at the house we are getting ready to sell. At our "new" place in Oregon we have volunteer walnut trees and hazel bushes, and plums.

Hi All,

One cherry tomato this year. These are the plants that really match your soil.

So they grow well and give good fruit!!
