Carol, who throws off garden blog memes like a rainbird sprinkles water, has invented the Ritual of the Tiniest Tomato.
Here's my entry, from 'Early Cherry'.
Carol put her tomato up against a nickel and declared herself the winner. Well, I couldn't find a nickel this morning, but (ahem!) I'm pretty sure pennies and dimes are smaller... And the San Francisco subway token is smaller still. The diameter of the subway token easily exceeds the tomato's. Can you see?
Somehow this plate didn't make it into last week's garage sale. Now it's a ritual throne.
