Tomato Plant Progress

So far we have harvested 5 tomatoes! The grape tomatoes are growing nicely and I hope they ripen soon. The pink beefsteak plants each have several fruit. I can't wait to see if they really are pink. And the patio princesses are growing quickly. I see blooms on both the plants, so I expect to see little cherry tomatoes growing in the next few weeks.

This angle reminds me of a roller coaster hill. You can see some grape tomaotes in various stages of ripening.


Grape tomatoes at night, after a very hard rain. We went outside to make sure none of the plants were damaged. Everything was fine, although the pink beefsteaks needed to be staked for better support.

Within 5 days the smaller tomato in the picture grew, and a brand new one sprouted (June 12)

  3. Hey Tom, great to see you here! And thank you both for the compliments--I don't know about having a green thumb. I have a lot of help. If Matt weren't out there inspecting the plants for aphids and spider mites and then killing them, I think I'd be feeding them instead of myself. :)
