Home Grown Tomatoes

Posted by mamabok | Awesome,Canadian,My Musing,Organic,Vegies | Sunday 30 August 2009 9:11 pm


These are home grown tomatoes from Aunt Helena’s garden.  We went to visit Chloe’s grandparents..  and we also had home grown corn .. which by the way is still the best.. and the sweetest.   For those who are not aware of this..  “ang moh’s” parents are big on growning their own vegies.. because they have a 100 acre land..   so if we visit during the season of harvesting.. we get to eat all the good stuff.   Chloe have a bag of peas to bring home too.   The best thing about “ang moh” land is .. lots of land.. so growing your own vegies..and flowers are a norm here.. unlike in Asia.. land is so precious.

    Cherry tomatoes are very yummy along with Roma tomatoes.. It is great that the inlaws have so much land that they can grow anything you want.. Fresh, organic veggies are the best!

    Home grown vegies are the best. I believe to Chloe , her grandparents homemade vegies are the best. My MIL own family grow their own fruits , like grapes, mikan(small orange)for sale. I am used to the mikan from her family , therefore to me the homemade arita mikan was the best.
    Lina,your wish to see your kai lah will definetely come true and I know it won`t be long. If they really can`t fly back to Singapore, you just fly there lah according to your plan.

    always wish that I could go picking up fruits at organic farm myself… Extremely far to get to the farms especially here in London… there’s only one kind of farm here — “Farms of buildings”… haha

    Cherry tomatoes are d tastiest! I agree totally that home grown veggies and fruits are still the best. I enjoy eating jap fruits and veggies, but they’re soooo exxx lah! Momos (peaches) are in season, but boy one of those yellow ones cost S$20 each, I jus bought the pink ones which costs less. I can only grow my chilli padi in pots in land scarce SGP.

    Cherry tomatoes are OH so good! 😛 Having a garden is so nice.

    Lina, you should definitely go visit MB and Chloe if you have time. It’ll be nice. :)

    Um, I agree with everyone about cherry tomatoes.. A lot of my neighbours grow their own. I had the chance last week to taste the difference between supermarket and homegrown! Both were very different in texture and taste!

    Home grown organic vegetables and herbs are super healthy and tastiest. We grow our own herbs in the back yard garden and really enjoy eating them in the summertime! Lina, hope your wish will come soon for you to meet your lovely kai Lui Chloe and MB’s family! :)

    Home grown veggies are the best! There’s always this sense of accomplishment during harvest time : ).

    I am just as lucky as MB. My parents grow lots of vegetables during the summer months. I get cherry tomatoes, regular tomatoes, eggplants, green peppers, cucumbers, yam leaves, grapes, figs, bitter melon, winter melon, squash, basil, green beans and much more. They love to garden every summer. I never have to buy any veggies in the summertime.

    I have tried growing tomatoes in a big pot before. They do taste better than those from the market.

    Lina, I hope you will be meeting your Kai Lui Chloe and her family soon…
