Cracked but juicy fruits

 The rainy season, which gave tons of water to my vegetables and damaged my carrots, has finished and a hot summer with scorching sunshine started. As the sunshine was becoming strong, the growth of my summer vegetables was getting so fast that some of them has become too big while I was absent for a few days. When I visited my garden last time, most of my tomatoes were still young and partially red but today I found most of them became as big as my fist and were cracked. The cracks might be caused by too much water the tomatoes sack up. But it's OK. I will not sell them but enjoy them at home. My tomatoes are cracked but so juicy.
Still my tomato trees have many young fruits so my family have to consume them to secure space for them in my fridge.
Today's harvest:
15 tomatoes
2 egg-plants
5 cucumbers



Only 1 intact tomato among 15 I harvested.
Today's dinner:
Tempura of egg-plants and Manganji chili peppers.

Today's dinner
Fresh tomato salad.

Your tomatoes still look good even if cracked. Yummy veggie tempura. That is something we always order when we eat at Japanese restaurants.

Looks like a great harvest! My tomatoes are still green. I've only started to harvest cherry tomatoes! And still no cucumbers!
