First Tomatoes

7.12 First Tomatoes 1

At the end of June, my first tomato (singular) was almost ripe enough for eating. It was the Early Girl tomato that beat out Better Boy.

A week later, I had enough for a tiny salad.

  1. Okay. I succumbed to the intoxicating smell of tomato leaves, to reports like yours of homegrown tomatoes, of the unparalleled flavor of Early Girl (IMHO) and bought a plant to try again this year. Your plant is looking very healthy -- I'm sure it's liking our hot weather!

  2. Nikki,
    For some reason, I have such poor results with container tomatoes. My mom, however, gets loads and loads from just one plant.
