It is that time of year again...tomato harvest time! As I have mentioned previously, never underestimate the determination of a blind and mostly deaf dog. All of the pack enjoy tomatoes but blind and deaf Brook is especially excited about fresh tomatoes.
Back when the garden was planted, I put in a cherry-type tomato plant near the back door just for the dogs. At the time I didn't realize that Brook took that to mean that she could help herself whenever she wanted to!
First, she inspects the plant and "looks" for ripe ones.
Then, closer inspection to be sure.
Once she figured out how to get over the low ornamental fence, she was in.
The plant is getting a bit damaged but it is a very large plant and Brook is enjoying herself, so that's okay.
Brook and a couple of the others will actually pick their own tomatoes. They quickly discovered that if the tomato releases easily it is good to eat. However, there is the occasional green one that gets eaten too.
This is something that Brook does every time she goes outside, even in the middle of the night when out for a pee. At least I know where to find her.
