There is no better sign of a plant’s health as when that first fruit appears.
In the case of my tomato vines, those little green fruit balls are emerging from dried yellow flowers.
Not entirely sure what kind of tomatoes are in these shots, and will find out soon enough. I’ve planted out some cherry and sweet mid-sized varieties, and one of them is a Diggers Big Red.
There are 6 tomato plants growing in the garden this year, as I’m freeing up plenty of room for the cucumber, pumpkin, and watermelon plants.
Apart from the weekly pruning there is not a great deal to do besides keeping the soil in good shape. Also the first year that I am companion planting tomato and basil.
Ain’t it just beautiful?
