Inch by inch

With all the rain Perth has been getting over the last few weeks my vegetables have been growing well beyond millimetre by millimetre or centimetre by centimetre (plus, inch by inch is waaaay quicker to say) 

In the last two months my tomatoes and snow peas have gone from this...

to this!

there are lots of green tomatoes of various sizes and about 4 orangey red ones, not long now til the first one gets popped in my mouth straight off the plant!
and the snow peas are creeping up fast, no flowers yet but I have my fingers crossed.
I love looking at how the tendrils curl around whatever's available.

Have you got any winter veggies growing?  How are yours coming along?

Nothing beats little cherry tomatoes straight from the plant...delicious! EXCEPT super fresh snow peas!!! My guinea fowl have the veggie patch this year, i'm keeping them in to collect the eggs. Luckily my neighbours who are retired have a fantastic veggie patch and they love to share :-)
