Green Tomatoes

By helenlinda
My friend Barbara gave me three tomatoe plants which I put into the garden. The trusses are getting very heavy, and so I have cut some off and brought them indoors to ripen. I've added a textured layer to them from a notice board at the Lickey Hills - came in really handy for a photo, but I'm going to need some sunshine to turn the tomatoes red.
Many thanks to Dven for his User Award yesterday
