I’m addicted to growing my own food — it’s a miracle to see a tiny yellow flower transform into a plump, round tomato. And it takes nothing more than water and sunshine.
These two beauties are from last summer’s crop. I photographed them as much for their smooth, burnished aesthetic as I did to record my own gardening achievement.
For those who like “how-to” details, I simply used my Holga Micro with a close-up filter held over the lens.
And what happened to the tomatoes?
Along with the rest of the crop, I made tomato paste — the home-made kind is so delicious, you’ll want to spread it on toast! My favourite recipe comes from Cuisine de Monde (it says to scrape out the seeds, but I never bother).
