Finally... Tomatoes!!!

Category: Vegetable Gardening | Posted: Fri Sep 12, 2014 1:09 pm

Things are finally picking up with my tomatoes.
Yesterday, I went picking through my plants and got about 5 lbs of tomatoes. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there are some plum tomatoes among my volunteer plants. I got mostly cherry tomatoes, but I also got a bunch of plums and two beefsteaks!
I also found the brown, shriveled remains of my hornworm with the wasp cocoons hanging off one of my yellowed tomato branches, in the same place I saw it last week.
Anyway, I brought my tomatoes inside, rinsed them off, and divided them up into four piles. One beautiful beefsteak with some nice cherry and plum tomatoes goes to my mother. She was very happy to get them. She started eating some cherry toms right away. "Heavenly," she said.
Two piles of cherry tomatoes, there are some large ones and some regular sized ones (there must have been some cross pollination), one pile for each of my grandmothers. The last pile is the other beefsteak and the rest of the cherry and plums that split, for me. The small pile of cherry toms from last week went to my brother and his family. So, there. All of my promises are fulfilled and there are still PLENTY of green tomatoes left on the vines.

Thank you!
I'm excited to finally have a decent harvest of tomatoes and still have so many on the vines.

I am already making big plans for next year!

Way to go.So glad that you were able to fulfil your promise...but most of all, I am glad that you are beginning to get some harvest.

Hopefully there will be more to come. Keep on keepin' on.
