Little Shop of Horrors?!

My blueberries and peaches were spirited away by birds and squirrels.

But the tomatoes?

BINGO!


If I didn't know better, I'd swear that plant was eating Hannah.



It sort of reminds me of this...

Maybe there is a snake in there?

confused homemaker said...

or perhaps it's like attack of the killer tomatoes?

TheKitchenWitch said...

I am so jealous! My herb garden got eaten by crabgrass. Sigh.

Love the picture!

blueviolet said...

Why was she reaching into the depths when I can see some right on the outskirts?

That tomato plant is bearing more fruit than all 8 of my husbands did last year.

ymK said...

I was thinking exactly what blueviolet asked, LOL. Why is going through such troubles? She looks cute doing so, but why?

The Good Cook said...

Wait, blueviolet has 8 husbands?

Hit 40 said...

A neighborhood only needs one tomato plant. They can be like a weed.

the ungourmet said...

My tomato plants are crazy huge too! Glad to see that those varmints didn't get everything!

beth said...

haha! great picture!

She's reaching into the plant because there are a ton of tomatoes you can't even see because of al the leaves.

And Hannah was doing the picking, because disrupting the plants causes the mosquitos to come out. She could jump back into the pool and save herself from the blodd-sucking beasts whereas I had my clothes on :)

Taylor said...

Yay for an awesome huge tomato plant! Even if it does eat Hannah!

i am the diva said...

That was the first musical i ever saw... nom nom nom, this kid is deliscious!

Nana said...

It does look like an evil child eater. Maybe that's why the tomatoes are so tasty and the plant is so huge. Are you missing any children in your area? Maybe you are getting lucky and it is eating the varmits.

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

And you feed your tomato plants what kind of food? Kids beware!

LadyFi said...

Definitely an evil tommato killer plant!

Kristina P. said...

It does look like it's eating her!

ck said...

Sometimes you gotta dig deep for the good ones...

JennyMac said...

HAHA..one VERY hungry tomato plant.

Grant said...

You probably have some really fat birds lurking around your yard. You should shoot them and serve them for dinner.

Jen said...

LOL!

Gibby said...

THAT is your tomato plant?????? Want to know how many tomatoes I got out of mine? TWO. For the entire season. I am jealous.

Mama Plays Mozart said...

Hilarious! I've been waiting all summer for my tomato plans to give me one lousy tomato!

Tammy Howard said...

That's just ONE PLANT?!?

(Love that you sacrificed your wee one to the mosquito gods...)

countryfriedmama said...

My lone tomato plant died a long, slow death this summer. It was horrible to watch.

Laoch of Chicago said...

Those giant venus flytraps are bad!

for a different kind of girl said...

And look at the magic you created without a Topsy Turvy Tomato bag! That is crazy!

faemom said...

My basil is going crazy, and my tomato not so much,so you want to get together for appitizers?

theycallmejane said...

I love your pics! And the comparison? Priceless!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Caught! I love it! Did she know you were there?

Grand Pooba said...

I sure hope your tomatos don't start eating you!

Unknown Mami said...

Little Shop of Horror lyrics are flooding my brain.

passions and soapboxes said...

The whole musical score of Little Shop of Horror's is running through my head now, thanks kathy.

JoeinVegas said...

Wow, I'm impressed. And glad you don't have bigger birds. (was she eaten)

WhisperingWriter said...

I wish I could grow things!

Mary K Brennan said...

Feed me Seymore. Feed me Now!
Tell that Hannah to keep both feet planted!

Zip n Tizzy said...

Wow! Look at that plant-
It's spectacular!

It hasn't been hot enough this summer and mine have produced but remained pretty small.
Yours is awesome!

Helene said...

That is the funniest picture...it does look like she's being eaten alive!!!

ScoMan said...

I thought she was diving or jumping or something. After you said about the plant eating her I had to go back for a second look.

MadMad said...

Well, of course they left the vegetables behind, right? Oh, wait - tomatoes are fruits aren't they? So scratch that...

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Now that is a tomato plant! Mine was barren this year. Of course it might have not been a good idea to forget to water it regularly since Mother Nature seems to be stingy with the rain these past couple of months... ;)

Why does picking tomatoes bring out the mosquitoes? Maybe I shouldn't have mine hanging on my back porch... :)

Susie said...

What the heck are you feeding that thing!!

Zeemaid said...

That's an amazing tomatoe plant!

Well, I guess it's good she's getting extra veggies in.. *L*

Yaya said...

Haha! At our old house we had a veggie garden, and a crazy neighbor. Literally, that guy was nuts. Anyways, he would come and rummage through our vegetable garden and help himself to our veggies! Hahahaha!

rachel said...

OMG. I hope the six Belinskis love tomatoes! And to think I was impressed by my little potted plant that bore me 2 dozen little cherry tomatoes! Amazing!
