Well after weeks and weeks of tapping my fingers waiting on a tomato, any tomato, some tomato, to ripen it has finally happened! I was beginning to wonder if I was going to get any ripe ones at all. It seems like an eternity from the time you first see that tiny little green orb pop up to when it finally turns red, and is ready to pick.
I was fortunate enough to get two today. The one on the left is an ‘Early Girl’, while the one on the right is a ‘Better Boy’. They are not state fair prize winners, but are decent size. I’ll take them any way I can get them right now. It’s been a long time since I have had a fresh garden tomato at the dinner table.
I have several more that are starting to turn, so hopefully by the end of the week they will start coming in droves! How are your tomatoes doing?
