Green Tomatoes


Photo from the Plotters gardens at The Commons. For Babooshka ("Orange green need to be seen" paraphrased) and Benjamin ("In a B&W photo, how can you tell if a tomato is ripe?").

Beautiful shot, that tomato is so firm and green. Is this companion planting - marigolds and tomatoes together?

Now there's the splendor of life - dewy drops on living green, punctuated with brilliant flowers. Like Benjamin, I've heard that those "companion" plants help save the tomatoes from pesky caterpillars.

nice, mmm makes me hungry of green tomatoes!!! beautiful shot!

Snapper said...

Yes, this is companion planting in action. All of the gardens at The Commons are organic, no pesticides and not even any hybrid seeds used.

Ann said...

Excellent shot, we are firm believers in organic vegetable gardening everything tastes so much better.

Julie said...

This is so very lush: everything looks healthy and the colours are superb.

Marigolds give off such a pungent odor they would drive anything away.

This is a lovely shot, contrasts of smooth tomato and frilly marigolds.
My mom tried that trick in her garden, but zut alors, the rabbits came and ate all the marigold flowers (not the tomatoes)

The marigolds are so pretty with the green tomatoes. Fried Green Tomatoes, so good. Makes me want to fry some up.

See, some photographs just tell what they need to be. This one said, " COLOR!"

The arguement for colour has a winner with this shot and my turn to be educated about compainion planting.
