This morning's pick (minus leafy stuff and herbs). Granny Smith, Zebra Tomato, chillis, red capsi, black capsi, green capsi, red pear toms, yellow lemon cherry tom and some other long red cherry tom.

and my little bit of excitement for the day - FIRST Granny Smith Apple. I have been trying to be so patient but today I looked and looked and looked at it and thought surely it could be ready? Oh boy it even LOOKS like a 'real' apple! I know I know it is a real apple, but you know what I mean.

FIRST Green Zebra Tomato. This one had been firm on the vine the other times I'd checked it and started to soften in the last few days. It's going to take some working out as to when the zebra toms are ready but I thought I'd give it a crack.

The Granny Smith was very very very tart, according to Brooke's face when she taste tested it. I needed to wait a bit longer. I think I kinda guessed that when I took it off the tree and the stem was still green. Nevermind. Two more on the tree and hopefully since they have one less to compete with, they will grow better and be less work for the tree.
The Zebra Tom was apparently very nice, Brooke said and would go great with ham. Husband said it could have done with a couple more days but was nice. So I'll keep going and growing and learning. Maybe I should look at cooch/couch (grass, like a weed but nastier in terms of getting rid of it) for a meal (I vaguely remember reading you can eat it somewhere but obviously haven't been desperate enough to try it)... certainly plenty of the stuff around.
