Pigface and currant tomatoes

Everything is still looking fresh after the rain we had last week and little weeds are jumping out of the ground. Too bad for them the weather will turn hot and dry again and frizzle them to death.

Sorry, I don't have much to talk about today.

My current tomatoes (Solanum pimpinellifolium) are fruiting like crazy. These are tiny tomatoes but have the best flavour. I would love to sell them in punnets but they are such a hassle to pick because they are so small. Oh well, I munch on them while and watering and enjoy them very much.

These are a great kids fruit as they are sweet and keep kids entertained for a long time as they pick them.

The pigface fruits are finally ripening. These native fruits may not look like much but are delicious when the insides are squeezed into your mouth.

This groundcover plant is found on sand dunes at the beach and also in dry inland places. They are ripe when they turn red and soft. When they are warm from the sun they taste so sweet and delicious that I can't stop at one or two.
