Blue Tomatoes and Mrs Clawfingers

These are OSU Blue tomatoes. They were developed by Jim Myers Ph.D, who holds the Baggett-Frazier Endowed Chair of Vegetable Breeding and Genetics in the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State University. That's a mouthful. They are very good, according to Dara. They turn more of a dark purple almost black when exposed to direct sunlight.

I almost "picked" this green pole bean, then I noticed the segmented abdomen and realized I had found Mrs Bitey Clawfingers. Hopefully her and Mr Clawfingers will get busy this year and have tons of baby Clawfingers.
