I wanted to photograph the first ripe tomato on the vine, and I kept reminding myself to do that, but it turns out that I completely lack discipline when it comes to fresh, ripe tomatoes off the vine. I popped the first one in my mouth and started savoring the sweet taste of summer before I remembered my plan. So this is a photo of the second ripe tomato on the vine.
ooh, I forgot all about sungolds this year. was in a hurry to slam some stuff in the pots before I lost my gardening momentum so I bought what was available at wallyworld--sweet cherry 100's. in fact I don't think I have seen any sungold plants for sale even at the organic farmer's market--but yours look DELICIOUS and there is always next year!
beautiful! i bought a tomato plant in march and it is bearing one single fruit (still some flowers left, so i don't give up hope!)... sadly, i have now left for 6 weeks of holidays so I probably won't even know what it tastes like... boohoo!
Beautiful color, and I can almost taste it. Mine shouldn't be too much longer in coming, I hope!
Elena: I've never planted sungolds before, so this was a new one for us. They have a wonderful sweet flavor!
Johanna: Hopefully your plant will still have plenty of tomatoes for you when you get back! Enjoy your holiday!
Nan, thank you! Hope you get many, many tomatoes!
They look deliciously fresh!
