HNT - Tomatoes

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

"A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins."
~ Laurie Colwin


*Oops! The hose got away from me!*click*

Why, you ask, are the tomato cages upside down? That would be because I've never grown tomatoes and I had no idea they were upside down - until a seasoned tomato grower asked me the very same question!

How silly do I feel now??

The position of the "squirting" hose is brilliant. And in my case, a bit embarrassing because something just happened that I am none to proud of. Cheers, your Hotness!!

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

I just *hate* when that happens...

Oh wait, no I don't. :)

Happy HNT!

Matt-Man said...

And by the way, you have great tomatoes!! Yum!!

Blissfully Wed said...

I have a new appreciation for tomatoes and those who grow them.

Beautiful and fun shots.

HHNT!

julie said...

At least you can make things grow!! My plants commit suicide!!

Moosekahl said...

I wouldn't worry too much, looks like they are doing okay. Happy HNT

Baby said...

What a fun and nice summertime post/photos :) Love the wickedly cute click over - Happy HNT!!!! (I wouldn't have realized the tomato cage was upside down either!)

Kittie Kate said...

I love tomatoes. I like the old fashioned multi-colored ones the best. I like all tomatoes. With something or just plain. Sometimes with salt.

Nice click thru! That was clever.

Happy HNT!

Jay said...

That hose has a mind of it's own!

Nice tomatoes.

Wouldn't it be fun to be your neighbor? Just happen to walk outside on the back deck and Whoa! Hey Dana! Hel-LO! ;-)

Vixen said...

Well....I was going to say "I hate when that happens"....but no. No I don't. LOL ;)

happyHNT chickie!

The Troll said...

Nice pics. Don't feel bad. I installed a doorknob backwards once. Happy HuNTing.

Dana said...

Matt-Man, there is nothing better than a well placed, squirting hose!

Ms. I, it was a hot, humid day today - I certainly didn't mind!

Matt-Man, they are beef eaters!

Dana said...

Bliss, it's all about having fun!

DME, I wondered if you'd come pick my tomatoes today!

Julie, I talk nice to my plants, and flash them - it seems to be working!

Dana said...

Moose, thank you for stopping by! I do hope the tomatoes make it!

Baby, I feel so goofy on the tomato cage! I had no idea!

Kittie, I've actually got 5 different varieties planted. I'll post pics when I have fruit!

Dana said...

Jay, I wondered who would be the first to notice that I did this in my very own backyard during daylight hours! Won't you be my neighbor?!

Vixen, and happy HNT right back at you!

Troll, I feel like such a dork! HHNT!

Neil Benson said...

I've always loved tomatoes. Now I can think of them in new ways. Excuse me I've got to go.

Masquerade said...

I really don't think you're big at all. I'm talking big like me - over 250 lbs, bulges everywhere, can't fit into anything smaller than a 20. And I don't want to be grateful that a man wants me. I want to want him back and know I'm worthy of his affection. it helps if he's actually attractive and not overweight himself. I sound really vain, I'm sorry. Thanks for your comment, the clickthrough on yours is fantastic. :)

Marlyn said...

I LOVE it! That is awesome!!

Boo(duh) said...

I didn't notice that your tomato cages were upside down. I was far too distracted by the amusing happy faced formed by your bounteous breasts and winking navel. I love a good double entendre, and I believe you caught this one quite by accident!

Evening said...

There is usually a prize for a wet tshirt contest and you would win it, hands down!!!
Happy HNT

Dana said...

Sage, what can I say? I'm just an upside down kinda gal!

Neil, I'll be sure to include them in an HNT when they ripen!

Masquerade, vanity is subjective! We all get what we think we deserve!

An Artist Exposed said...

That looks a great way to cool down on a hot day. The second photo - so lovely.... so kissable.

Mike said...

Nice tomatoes ;)
Brill HNT pictures, very clever indeed.

Richard said...

The cage is not upside down. It can't be, that's the way i use the cage.

captain corky said...

ery nice! I haven't looked forward to Thursdays like this in a very long time. Not since the days of Seinfeld.

Dana said...

Marlyn, sometimes I do funny better than I do sexy!

Boo(duh), *gigglesnort* I do have a happy face on my tummy!

Evening, maybe my neighbors will all chip in!

Dana said...

Artist, it did feel good, even if the water was a bit cold!

Mike, clever is good!

Richard, maybe you and I are just upside down together?

Lu' said...

Very nice. Very nice indeed. I don't know, the colors seem so right. Great Capris and the sandals. That shirt, well, water does it GOOD.

Luka said...

I wouldn't have a clue about tomato cages but I can't imagine who would notice such a thing while you are at work with the hose.

Lovely!

bdenied said...

very nice HNT, great blog and great photography skills too. Inventive..

Dana said...

Corky, HNT and Seinfeld in the same sentance? *shakes head*

Lu, I think I like the shirt better wet than dry!

Luka, *giggle* and it was even a man!

Love your pair of tomatoes!

Biscuit's HNT said...

Naughty hose! Someone is going to get a spanking...

I grew tomatoes once. I had a dozen lovelies that were going to be perfect the next day, and when I went out to get them, there were only half eaten tomatoes all over the ground. I cried.

Karen said...

Something tells me you have some experience with wet tshirt contests. Am I wrong?

Dana said...

bdenied, thank you for the bounty of compliments!

Kannon7, I don't think my tomatoes would bode well on a salad though.

Biscuit, it was actually your Car Wash HNT that inspired this!

Bond said...

I hate when the hose does that...

Great idea..well done.

Dana said...

Karen, whatever would make you think that? You know what's funny? I've only ever entered ONE contest (about half of my lifetime ago), and I didn't even finish in the top 3!

Polt said...

Hey, as long as you GET tomatos, who cares how the cage is positioned, right?

HAPPY HNT!

cat said...

Who doesn't love a wet T-shirt.....oh, you meant Tomatoes!

Real Live Lesbian said...

I love a good firm *tomato*! Nice one's you've got there!!!! ;)

Ms. Lily said...

That is great,I am looking at the plants, then hit the click through.
So why was I taken by surprise, lol
Very nice!!
HHNT

Lapis Ruber said...

My what big t... t... t....tomatoes you have :-) Happy HNT.

Dana said...

Bond, it's almost as bad as getting a kink in your hose!

Polt, I'm hoping I do get tomatoes! I've got flowers, but no fruit yet.

Cat, tomatoes are the crop of the day!

Dana said...

RLL, maybe I could ship a tomato or two to you *wink*

Ms. Lily, surprised? That's good!

Lapis, maybe when the tomatoes are fully matured I'll take another HNT shot of them!

Anonymous said...

You're a hoot. Wonder if the neighbors saw your wet t-shirt *giggle*.

I love home grown tomatoes. I only planted two plants but I'm impatiently waiting the fruits of my labor. They're still green. :(

buffalodickdy said...

Not the "tomatoes" I was hoping for...Any photos of melons? :)

Dana said...

FF, I don't even have green tomatoes yet - just flowers! Oh, and for the record, one of the neighbors was mowing his lawn and another was out on her deck *giggle*

Buff, you've got to click on the picture to get to the melons!

Leighann said...

I would say you need to be more careful with the hose, but then I'd be lying!

Knight said...

Great effect with the hose. Now Everybody's wet!

the good doctor said...

I was SO hoping that was where the click-thru was headed when I saw the hose and t-shirt. Nice ummm...tomatoes!
You should try growing them in an upside down bucket. Quite interesting to watch.

Dana said...

Leighann, get on over here so I can squirt you!

Knight, ha! You are FUNNY!!

Good Dr., whew! So glad I didn't disappoint you! I've seen the upside down tomato plants and thought they looked like a lot of fun!

doggybloggy said...

nice 'maters.....and those melons look ripe enough to eat!

buffalodickdy said...

Clicked the picture... I am a sucker for nig bipples! You are a bit taller than me, if we ever dance, I will show my impression of a face doing windshield wipers..num-num-num-num-num...

d2b said...

You are winning the ms. wet t-shirt contest! Congratulations. I just love the clickie!

Happy HNT!

Turnbaby said...

I do love a good gardening pic---especially accompanied by the clever ;-)

Dana said...

DB, the tomatoes are growing, hopefully the melons are in a holding pattern.

Buff, you always have to click my HNT pics - you never know what you might get!

d2b, I think I need to give the shirt credit too - it was perfect for the shot!

Dana said...

Turn, clever is what we over 40 crowd must count on *wink*

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Yummy.

Alex the Blogging Kat said...

Mariposa said...

Lovely photos there!

I love tomatoes...and in my grandparents farm, yes, the grow the tomatoes upsdide down there...they say it makes the air circulate better and it does not rot the fruit easily...oh well! ;)

HHNT!

d2b said...

No, all credits to you. And that was a hot shot!

Ro said...

Darn, what a pity that the hose got away from you ;^) And how brave of you to share your mistake(s) :D

And I'm another one who wouldn't have realised the cage was upside down either ...

Happy HNT!

Dana said...

Nick, the tomatoes? They aren't even ripe yet!

Alex, I know you were hoping that was fresh catnip!

Mariposa, maybe next year I'll try the hanging pot.

Dana said...

d2b, actually it was a little chilly!

Ro, next time I'll lower the water pressure so the dang thing doesn't get me all wet!

I Smile 2 Much said...

Greg & Sheryl said...

BTExpress said...

What a wonderful way to meet you on my first visit to your blog. :-) Happy HNT!

Neil Benson said...

Do you do any mail order business?

Anndi said...

What cages?

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

I wasn't sayin' "yummy" about the tomatoes!

Anonymous said...

And who's even looking at your tomato cages?

Great shots... I'm still trying to find the courage to venture outdoors...

Pronto said...

and, i know for sure what i'm gong to be thinking about when i'm watering the flowers after work.

Anonymous said...

What a happy accident. And its effects still ripple out. I'm going to have to go and hose myself down now.

Rogue said...

A deliciously sensual, and playfully fun, shot.
