...reddening tomatoes that used to be green...
When I was little we used to sing a song in school at harvest festival time called Paintbox. I absolutely loved it and it is such a cheerful song about all of the growing fruits and vegetables that it has stayed with me all my life. Anyway, now we have some of the song in action with our first bright red ripe tomatoes. We picked the first three the other day. As there were only three of them there wasn't enough to actually make anything from them so we just sliced them into quarters and munched on them. And they were lovely! The tomatoeiest tomatoes ever!
