love apples! What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday time! and a question?

No, you're right, there aren't any love apples actually on my desk,
a bunch of stuff in the works for Altered Pages

But I DID pick my first tomato of the season!
Did you know they used to be called love apples? Anyway, Happy What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday to you, and thank you to the lovely Julia for hosting the party! Oh, and here's the question--can anyone point me to a good tutorial that tells how to put photos in a grid on blogger? Like a table with 6 or 9 photos in it, does that make sense?

Hi Trisha, congratulations on the tomatoe... I am presuming that you actually have more than one... but its a lovely decent size!
Hmm, not sure you can do the grid thing with photos in blogger... you might have to the grid bit before you upload it. Annette #6

Hi Trisha, Love the tomato. We picked our first strawberry yesterday :-) Nothing quite like the flavour of something just picked is there?
I use Picasa 3 for my collages of's a lovely programe and is really easy to use. Hope tht helps.

I am brand new to WOYWW, I linked up for the first time tonight. So now I have officialy knocked you off the bottom, I now am in last place. Next week though I have loftier goals, I am aiming for top 20. I think can do it. Bet that tomato was delicious. I love fresh picked tomatoes sliced as a side dish on my table for summer meals. I started following you. Looking forward to seeing how your project looks when it's done. Happy crafting!!!

We hardly ever really look at a tomato...they're so common. But actually, they are really beautiful..and you can see why they were called love apples! I hope you get many many more in your harvest!
Hugs, LLJ 31 xx

Hi Trisha, that's a juicy looking tomato! My plants are still only about 6 inches tall - I was late potting them on - I hope they catch up with yours! Thanks for your visit. Enjoy the fruits of your labours. MMx #56

Hi Trisha, Your tomato looks good enough to eat :)
Sorry I can't help with the pics question. I'm always pleased with myself when I simply manage to upload a single one to my blog :)
Thanks for dropping by,

I love fresh tomatoes! That looks like a good one!

Candace said...

I used picassa - create a collage then just upload like a normal photo

Thanks for sharing and have a great week

There is something special about picking your own produce isn't there. I was so excited when I picked my first orange and this year, hopefully we will have our first ever lemon!
It is relatively easy to make a photo grid in any graphics program, and then you can size it to the width of your blog 'useable panel' and upload it as one picture. I am lucky enough to have adobe photoshop, but you can download picasa for free and do it in that. Kate x

Hi Trisha, lovely shades of pink in those papers and trims on your desk. The tomato looks deeelisious I would eat that sliced with a drizzle of vinaigrette and sprinkled with fresh chives yum. Thanks for visiting me already.
Happy art making

Neet said...

You know, you reminded me - somewhere in the back of my mind I have heard them called that - it's a beauty!
I think I know what you mean about the grid but I can't help. I'd quite like to know myself - I cannot even put two side by side.
Sorry I am so late, dare I say it, cleaning got in the way - and thanks for visiting me yesterday. Hugs, Neet 13 xx

I use to make photo collages. It's so much easier than picasa.

Anonymous said...

That looks so yummy!
Have you tried Picassa?

I love the peek on your desk but I even more love to see that tomato... they don't come that nice and red in the stores here in the Netherlands... should I grow my own too maybe? Have a creative week! Happy ~ belated ~ woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #91

I bet it tasted so very much better than anything you could buy in the shops, didn't it??!! Looks wonderful - and so nicely presented - like a trophy! We have had four bowls of our own strawberries so far - and just told a friend to help herself next week as we are away!! We'll miss them.
I love the colours of everything on your desk.
Thanks for dropping in.

That first fruit is always so sweet ! I have a basil plant in full leaf - maybe I should pop over with some ! Who can resist tomato with fresh basil ! Ali #34

Bernice said...

Wow - my tomato plants are only just starting to produce flowers - it will be a while yet 'til they look like that (if ever!!). Thanks for visiting earlier - yes that aqua is my favourite colour as well!

Dianne said...

Hey Trisha, lovely pink bows there,pretty lace too, and some very interesting cards hidden under that ribbon, ,nice tease:),oh we won't have our tomatoes till the end of July, then it;s tomatoes every day, I have to buy them by the basket, half green then fry those, I can't wait, teasing again :O). Happy WOYW, have a great week end....

trisha too said...

Thank you for the Picasa suggestions--got it downloaded, but it keeps freezing up. However, from what I've been able to tell so far, it looks great! I just need to figure out what's going on--we may not have enough memory, but that seems unlikely. The prompt says the colors running aren't compatible with the Windows blahbitty blah blah computer stuff blah blah.

Something like that.

Lots of pink on the desk there. Gorgeous yummy looking tomato! Good luck with picasa. Thanks for the earlier visit. Happy WOYWW! Nan G #108

Darnell said...

My mouth is watering for that love apple, Trisha! I'm glad your plants weren't ruined with all the rains.

I use Picasa to create collages. It's the free Google web album software. Let me know if you have that, but aren't sure how to get to the collage tool.

Thank you for coming by to visit me and Happy (late) WOYWW!! Darnell #32

Alexa said...

That's an impressive first tomato - you must be getting good sunshine! x

Bridget Larsen said...
