Hang on Little Tomato

In a last ditch effort to get some red tomatoes, we gave the tomato plants a big haircut! Nothing left but stalks and fruit!
Look little tomatoes...It's the sun!
Hey, it seems to be working. We have ripening.
Oh, how I love my VEG!
What's up Doc?

Our friend Fern makes a veggie stew for her Dog 'Bambi'.
It is healthy and delish. Stanzie begged for more. I really liked the sweet potatoes.(we left out the jalapeno...) 
Stop by Fern and Bambi's place to say HI!

Bambi's Veggie  Dog Stew

1 cup Barley
4-6 fresh Tomatoes
2 cups Green Beans
1 Sweet Potato cut into bite size pieces
1 jalapeno pepper, diced (seeds removed)
2 1/2 cups of water
dash of sea salt
misc. fresh herbs

Cook on stove top for 12-15 minutes. Cool and Eat!

I think the band 'Pink Martini', must have wrote this song just for me and my tomatoes!
It has a long musical intro, lyrics start about a 1/3 into the song. It's worth the wait.
Eat your daily VEG!
And if you ever get the chance to see Pink Martini perform...JUST DO IT!


  1. Nice airekhut fur your tomatoes!

    The stew looks yummy fur Mom and me!

    Thanks fur sharing the Pink Martini - now Mom won't need any AGJ!


  2. Wyatt, how does you mom and dad get you to pose so well in all these shots? :) I bet you just love the camera! or the camera loves you:)

    Will try the veggie stew for Bender and Barbie some time soon. They love fruit more than veg though, especially apples. :)

  3. Hi Wyatt,
    Oh I am so happy to see my name on your post!!!!!!!!! Very nice if anyone has any questions just tell them to come see me. Could you find rolled barily?? We can only get it in an all organic store and sometimes they have the rolled and sometime they have the pearled and that has to have more water and longer cooking time.
    Where do you buy it??
    XXOO, Fern
    PS thanks!!

  4. Fern and Bambi have a great recipe there - bet the humans would like it too. We would like to know the answer to Jet's question - are there lots of bribes involved?;-)

    Nubbin wiggles,

  6. Wyatt,
    Gee...think of all the stew you can have with all those tomatoes!! I will have Mom try the reciepe! BTW I love carrots too!! I hop like I am part rabbit!! hehe


  7. When mom started taking my picture, she would give me treats. Now, I get so happy every time I see the camera, no treats required. It helps that I'm always happy and I love for my peeps to be outside!


  8. I love my veggies, especially carrots! I was a rabbit in a former life - just kidding!

    Your pal, PIp

  15. Hiya Wyatt
    Last year we had the same problem. We picked them and left them on the windowsil until they went red. Love the song and don't fall for the "no treats" trick. Must get George to give you some tips. LOL

  16. Hi Wyatt! Stumpy and I have missed you and Stanzie something fierce! It's good to see your gardens are still producing and your still getting your veggies!

  17. Music and Gardening not a bad combo, yes the song must have been wrote just for you.
    Love the new header, Oh I've just seen dad put a comment up!
    Wyatt if your happy without treats thats good, I'm having to watch my waist line now. So if you can do without I will have ago to.
    See Yea George xxx

  18. You are very cool not eating the tomatoes on the vine!!!

  19. Oh Wyatt I so hopes you can salvage some of them 'maters. Dat was to work to put into gardening if you can't help 'em grows.
    I swears, everytime I comes heres I start drooling and I ain't even a drooly dog.


  20. We're glad to see that your tomatoes are getting red, Wyatt! What a brilliant idea to give the plants a hAirecut!
    Fern and Bambi's stew sounds yummy!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  21. We have overheard our mom TALKING to the tomatoes, asking them not to burst in the rain. We like the burst ones because she gives some of 'em to us!

  22. I sure hope those tomatoes get red soon!


  23. I didn't know you could do that to tomato plants! It's too late for mine this year, but I'll try it next year.

  24. thanks for the recipe! i will get my momma to make it for me!


  25. I'd eat that stew in a heartbeat and so would Mumsie...oh yum....

    In that pic of you in the snow, where was that taken, Wyatt?

    That was quite a snowfall!!



    Have you ever heard of Fireblight? We have it on our pear tree...our favorite tree that we can eat the yummy bears off of...sniff...can it be saved?

  26. I think it's very Most Wonderful that you luvs your veggies. I've only found a few that I like myself. Celery's one of 'em. Mom says that's weird. Is that weird?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  27. Great idea about the tomato haircut. I'm also going to try cutting the roots 6" from the trunk of the plant. Suppose to speed up ripening.

  28. Hi Wyatt!

    This is so very exciting!!! We just came from the blog hop to say hello and here we find that you are our neightbors! Can you believe it? We live in Estacada, but don't tell anybody :) My little brother Higgins went to doggie school in Oregon City. Do you sell to the general public or wholesale? We love to buy stuff for our garden so it would be fun to meet sometime!
