Pretty Please

The tomatoes are finally ripening!
They sure do look yummy!
Can I please have one?

Which one should I help myself to?
 Might as well be polite and not go for the biggest one! 
Gram always says to take the closest one to you!
 What do you mean I was just supposed to be posing with them and not eating one?
 I feel pretty certain that this was an offer!
Thanks, mom!

Yer most favorite boy,


  1. So cute but oh so hard to not resist those luscious tomatoes!

  2. those are looking just wonderful and I bet they taste great - we got about a pound off ours then they got attacked my the biggest ever caterpillars mom had ever seen - they ate the tops and flowers off all the plants - so looks like no more tomato's for us :(

  3. Such a good chap to pose like that. Maybe there is some squash in that garden that you can nom on.


  4. Maybe you'll get a tomater yet Mitch!

  5. Mitch, you are such a good boy to help harvest the tomatoes. I wonder what type that striped one is?

    Believe it or not, one of my tomato plants is still hanging on in the middle of winter - very cold, but we don't get snow or many frosts - and even has a new flower on it today. I'm waiting to see if perhaps this one final plant even lasts into another spring and summer.

  6. I forgot to say - do you get hot, hot summers? We are experimenting with a technique where you take off all the leaves on the tomato plant except the top few and bury the plant up to those leaves - about a foot at least into the ground. The plant I did that with is the one that has had a wonderful crop and its still alive right in the middle of winter.

  7. Hi Mitch, a tomato always tastes better with some crunchy treats. How's the OB training going?

  8. We've never had tomato -- is it good? (Does it taste like chicken?)

    Wirey love,

    Jake and Just Harry

  9. One of our dogs growing up ate warm tomatoes straight off the vine. I'm wondering now if it was our airedale, Stinger...

  10. There's a tomato sitting on my table today... I know it's a test. I know mom left it there to see if I would take it off the table... or maybe she just forgot and I get a free tomato? Hm...

  11. Very cute post! I love a good tomato too!

  12. Did you enjoy the tomato Mitch? Maybe I should go pick one of daddy's from his garden? :-)

  13. They look wonderful! Wonder if you can play fetch with them too?

  14. Oh yea Mitch your Tomatoes are just beautiful!

    Of course your supposed to eat them, they were THERE!

    woos, Tessa

  15. Looked like an offer to us!


  16. How many did you leave on the plate, Mitch?

  17. I think models should be able to help themselves to whatever they have to pose with! Good job!

  18. Brilliant - and you took it so gently too - if we'd had a chance the whole bowlful would be across the floor! Dex and Lou x

  19. They sure look yummy!!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  22. We're pretty sure there is a written law or something stating that dogs cannot JUST POSE with fruit. We just can't find it.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  23. Mom is trying so hard to snitch some of those tomatoes right off your blog. We don't see nice ones like that here very much. We aren't crazy about tomatoes,must be because we don't have good ones like yours.

    Have a good weekend, Mitch and Maggie.

  26. What an expression when you said they weren't for him to eat! We would love to taste those tomatoes. Nothing is growing around here this summer because it's so hot.

  31. Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
    I have a mini tomato every morning in my garden.
    I love tomatoes.

  32. Your tomatoes look very yummy! Mitch, you picked the same one our mom would have picked! Nice and red and juicy looking! Our 2 tomato plants have quite growing. I guess the heat is too much for them!
