The Purple Tomatoes Arrive

My first Cherokee tomato finally reached the point of plucking. It remains a little green around the very top, but it should be able to complete its costume change indoors.

I guess that's a milestone. We'll make use of this one and its now blushing brothers on the Fourth.

I'm thinking "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes: The "Cherokee" War." Better not turn your back on this one. He looks dangerous. I'd eat him soon before he eats you.

You know, I did think it moved while I was getting the camera.

You guys are too funny. Congrats on a successful harvest, Sidney. :)

You know, all I can see is Marlon Brando, sticking an orange peel in his mouth, and running through the rows of tomato plants while his grandson chases him with weed killer. WHAT???

Oh wow, Stewart, that brings it all together. The Godfather meets Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.

The Godfather IV: The Produce Strikes Back.

A zombiefied Don Corleone fights shoulder to shoulder with his son against the invading tomatoes.

"In this garden, tomatoes are more dangerous than shotguns."
