The world is a funny place.  When I took these photos, I didn’t imagine that tomatoes would be the hot news topic in Kuwait!  During our stay in London, my wife’s best friend visited us and gave us a cherry-tomato plant.  My daughter, Noor, loves cherry tomatoes… Always has done.  We placed it in a shielded bright spot and tied the long branches to secure them.

The weather was perfect and we were soon enjoying the fruits.  The plant did have some green tomatoes when we received it, but we also got to see some of the flowers go through the whole journey.

I hope sanity returns to our fruit-and-veg-markets.  The last movement I’d want to support is the let’s-boycott-the-tomatoes one!


  1. Wow! I followed your blog a few years ago! I had no idea you had gone to london! On vacation?
    The tomatoes in Kuwait are terrible at the minute, not only quality, price too!! Stay where you are if you have any sense! LOL

    • He lives in London with his family now.

      Great post, as always. Also i want add that you should write more on your posts Bu Yousef cause i find them similarly as amusing as the beautiful pictures.

    • I’m actually in Kuwait. We’re therefore working on reducing our tomato consumption 🙂

  2. Good subject in the right time. The pictures are telling us the beautiful story.

    • Thanks Sami. The pics were sitting inside my laptop waiting to be released at this more-appropriate time. Clever little buggers.

  3. not a big fan of tomatoes .. but atleast for now you can enjoy ur cherry tomatoes until the prices go down! 🙂

    • We had to give it to our Neighbour in London before coming back. Now we’re trying to work out a supply deal from UK to Kuwait without paying too much import tax.

      • I think it’s time I went to bed… Otherwise these silly replies will go on and on 🙂

  4. Gosh, I love fresh, homegrown tomatoes.
    Miss the Veggies from Hungary, so yummy and so cheap, sometimes for free when the neighbours had too many *sigh*

    I am often buying the Veggies in one of the small shops nearby, they seem to taste more like, uhm, vegetables…
