Quite contrary

The good news is that the tomato plants are finally pregnant. The bad news is that I am not.

I'm sorry you're not bearing fruit as of this moment. It'll come. And in due time you'll have nice yummy tomatoes. Much love.

Poop. But the tomatoes look like they'll be lovely. Still, poop.

Obviously, there is nothing I can say except that I am so sorry. This just sucks (for lack of appropriate eloquence). How are you holding up?

That really sucks. It's too bad that tomato margaritas would taste like crap. Would you like to come over and share my ibuprofen & heating pad & chocolate & wine and perhaps watch "Roman Holiday"? Let me know...(I know it'd be a bit of a drive.)

My husband and I chose to plant some tomatoes this summer. During the hectic mess of us deciding to adopt, we totally ignored those poor things. Imagine our surprise when we went out to find it full of pretty little red tomatoes.

He now calls it our hope bush...

When I was a kid we used to watch SC-TV, some weird Canadian comedy show, and it had this song that went: "A-ttack, of the killer To-ma-toes, a-ttack, of the killer To-ma-toes..." over and over, while these tomatoes went around squashing people. It was very funny when I was eight. Anyway, that's what I kept thinking while I was reading your entry today.
My tomatoes have blight, just like their mommy. They are fruitful, but sick. Maybe tomatoes reflect our inner fertility -- your's look beautiful and healthy, so maybe it's an omen of things to come...

I'm sorry. Good tomatoes are not good enough to help you right now. I wish I could give you a night in with a catered dinner, and chocolately dessert, then cuddle up with a blanket and your man to watch some brainless comedies. Next time I hope you do get to buy that pregnancy test, and that it gives you the second line you deserve.

You could always throw those ripe, juicy 'matos at some fertiles? That should make you smile, at least for a while! ;-)

Of course, I'm just kidding around - sheesh! Loosen up, people!

Pick yourself up when you are ready and you have plenty of hands if you need help getting up.

Oh Mare. Shit. About you, I mean, the tomatos look fine.
I just don't know what to say except a very heartfelt "I am so sorry."
So sorry.

Random stranger here...not really random, been reading you now for a couple of weeks, and was hoping to live vicariously through you...sorry to see that the trip to the pharmacy wasn't a productive and rewarding one!

Oh, and I am all for the tomatoeing of the fertiles!!! Hand me a nice rank, slimy one, will ya?

On to the next flipping cycle....

I find the link between the fertility of tomatoes and women quite interesting....let's hope that while your tomatoes were late bloomers, your time might be coming yet too!:)

Your tomatoes, look great...My deck is overrun by tomato vines as well....
