The fruits of my labour
I never thought I would end up with such a nice crop of tomatoes this year. When I planted the tiny plants around the May long weekend we got some frost and I covered them, but they looked a little ill for a while after that. Then we finally got some rain, and some heat and the plants took off! I would estimate that between the three plants I have around 25 tomatoes. I have been glad to see some of them are ripening on the vine, as I know how long they can take to ripen off the vine. I ate the first tomato yesterday and it was delicious, even though it was even still a tiny bit green! Yum!
