My yellow pear tomatoes are now ripening faster than I can eat them, and I’m the only one in the house who likes tomatoes! This is one day’s haul. The first few fruits were disappointing: mealy in texture and not as flavorful as I’d hoped. But as we continue to get more warm weather, the sugars build nicely and now they’re sweet and delicious, and the texture is satisfying. The other tomato variety I’d planted (“Big Boy”) has been an utter disappointment, lots of flowers but no fruit at all, so yesterday I pulled it out to give the more productive member of Team Tomato more room to spread out.
I don’t know what this one is in the front yard, but it also has some unusual purple flowers
Meanwhile back indoors, the dust buildup on our shutters was hitting Critical Mass, so I actioned one of these.
