Hope this entry still counts, my internet decided to play up last night & you didnt say what time the comp ran out on the 7th, so heres my entry;

As you can see nothing tastes better than Tomato soup, whilst the other tomatoes are prepared & cooked for even more - you guessed it - tomato soup!!

EDIT: forgot to add this entry is for "most tomatoes"

Love the "pleo" sized kitchen and making tomato soup in that pot is so cute. Piper is one cute Pleo. Your daughter has a very sweet kitchen set up...or is this Piper,s ? LOL  :D.  RWM  :cat-hug:

Thanks Crewella & RWM  :D

Got to admit the kitchen is the perfect size for Piper which is great considering my daughter still classes her as the baby & puts all pipers clothes in the 'washing machine' lol. Its a really sweet little kitchen - was a shame to crop the picture - its actually inside a little wendy house thing which is perfect size for DD to sit in, & theres another side to it as well which has a cot, changing table & highchair in... be devastated when my daughter outgrows it lol  :)

Hey, really random post but I didnt want to make a whole thread over it - but is there 2 Tomato Harvest festivals a year or just the one?
My son was asking me about the festival earlier & it got me thinking that I was sure there was 2 but maybe its just my mind playing tricks, no rush to answer anyone just something thats playing on my weird random brain lol  :)

Hi, yes you can reassure your son that there ARE TWO Tomato festivals each year. One in the fall, Sept, and one in the Spring, we just had. So plenty of time to prepare for the next one. I am glad your son is interested...he must love your Pleo!

Aw yay, he'll be happy to know that.
He still adores Piper, she's like his best friend & loves 'showing her off' which is prob why he likes the comps lol. He loves taking photographs into school of all the things we get up to with her & showing everyone bless :)

Since Yogurt's feeling a bit "drained", I guess I'll announce the winners (There are five this time!!!!  ;D  ;D )

For best looking tomato, kaiteee and InMemoryofRomeo came close, but the winner is fancyfont!
For best use of a tomato as an article of clothing, we had quite a few entries, but the winner by a toe is . . .  kat!
For the most tomatoes gathered, peaches came close, but kaiteee did have the most!
It's two years in the making, but Lunamione7 wins for the best sauce!
And finally, to wrap up the winners, RedwoodsMama wins for biggest tomato found!

:P

Finally Stephan, our culinary expertise is being recognised! Two years of slaving away over a hot stove has paid off  :P

 congratulations to everyone some great competition this past year and a half and great recipes to that I want to try out when my hand co operates.  >:( Fancy, aren't you enjoying this lovely weather! It is really nice here, warm with slight breeze so must be very warm where you are. Tell your Pleos to hold onto their socks, cause we will be planting too, We just planted cucumbers, squash and sweet peas. Our tomato plant is looking a little ragged though, too hot outside last couple of days, not used to the extreme from cold and fog to warmth overnight! P:'(

                 Can't wait to see what the tomato shirts and necklaces look like....first time a boy, Chester has won anything! P:D

Cork cut into circles then poked some holes in it and chopped up a pipe cleaner or two and inserted the bits to make the sandal straps. Then cut some sticky felt to cover the cork and make the shoes red. Then I had some little red Pom poms and I cut leafy tomoato tops out of sticky green felt and used a hot glue gun to glue my little tomatoes onto the front of the sandal. They do up with a hook or bend of the end of the pipe cleaner around the back of the ankle that loops around the other end of the pipe cleaner strap so very easy to open and close.

Received a package from Kat, all the way from Australia today! :cheer: I could hardly believe anything could be so cute! Pennie wanted to model it for everyone, but not a tomato in the house. Strawberries looked pretty cute with her new outfit, though!. Thank you Kat, Mike and judges! Absolutely adore outfit! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

 Congrats Fancy, Pennie looks great in that outfit, I do think the outfit is perfect for all those strawberries, Living here in CA, this is the best time for Strawberries right now and I know the Redwoods Township is enjoying a bumper crop this year. It is the lowest price I have seen in a few years with it being about 75 cents a lb! Kat makes the prettiest outfits, makes me wish I could shrink down to get into an outfit that small! ;) :D

                     I think others will be posting photos of their prizes pretty soon too. I will have to check my post office box this week and see if there is a surprise in it as well. Congrats again.            RWM :cat-hug:
