My 8ft cherry tomato plant
Lens: 18-250 Pentax--100mm wr Camera: k5 Photo Location: Saugus 
Posted By: charliezap, 08-08-2011, 05:15 PM

All the soil in my yard was replaced last year and my tomato crop is having a "field day". This is my flagship plant growing at the base of the deck and it is loaded with fruit.The other plants are doing well but this one is going crazy.The 2nd shot was taken with the 100mm wr "up close and personal" lens.It looks like we'll be eating a lot of salads in a few weeks.--charliezap

Nice shot on the second one Charlie. If you get tired of eating those delicious cherry tomatoes, you can send me some.

WOW, that is a plant, you must not be having problems with squirrels and rabbits there. I see you got an EM reflection rain drop
Nice shots there Charlie, enjoy the tomatoes. Bob

Very well done and you got great clarity in that drop so either the anti-shake on your camera works well or you had a night away from the Booze!

Hey Capn - that second shot is super. Now that looks like one take-no-prisoners plant.

Thanks everyone.Where I live here in Saugus Ma I'm just a 1/2 mile from US RTE 1
home to more restaurants than Em has drops.In the Summer when the cherry tomatoes are in abundance I take a dozen or so when we go out to eat and they sure go great with a thick blue cheese dressing on a salad.Even in the Summer many restaurants here don't use native grown veggies.We went to one place and I said to our server that the cherry tomatoes here are great.She did a double take and said "wait a minute we don't have those here."We all had a good laugh.--charliezap
