Finally Some Rain

The weather was milder this week. Some much needed rain fell on Wednesday night.

Lately I've been picking two or three tomatoes per day. Last post I mentioned that I picked one tomato, "Big Red", that weighed in at 600g. Today I've included a photo of that tomato, along with a few smaller ones for comparison. I've started saving tomato seeds for next year.

A couple of the capsicum plants now have some fruit growing. The largest aubergine plant also has had it's first flower turn into a tiny eggplant.
