Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth Tomatoes in SW France

home grown tomatoes
Why can’t I grow tomatoes like this!

Now you won’t find tomatoes like these in the supermarket! My neighbor Maurice, a spritely 82-year-old,  grew these in his vegetable garden across the road from our house deep in the heart of the countryside here in South West France.

One of the advantages of living in South West France with hot sunny summers, and having a very generous neighbor with ‘green fingers’ and many years experience of living off the land.

As you see, they are not perfect tomatoes – they are irregular shapes, have patches of green amongst the bright orange and reds, little imperfections here and there.

But who cares – they taste absolutely delicious!
