It's Here! It's Here! My very first tomato.

Very first tom! ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

This evening I discovered that my very first tom had formed, it was not from the very first flowers but from another bunch of another plant.


Leaf Miner scar ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

The plant that flower first had a couple of it's leaves attacked by leaf miners and is suffering from leaves curl. The leaf miners matter was easily solved by pinching where the leaf miners track is and for the curling leaves I'll be trying Mart's epsom salt remedy. Tomorrow is supermart day so I'll be looking for epsom salt, hope they have it.


2 good, 1-? ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

All three plants is having the curling syndrome and the one which is most severe, the flowers are not forming. Now to keep my fingers and toes crossed that I will at least get one tomato to maturity!

Thanks Annette, Droopy. I just got back from the supermart and I could not find any epsom salt :( Will try another place soon, pharmacy sure costly.

Congratulatioons on that first tom. Isn't it a beauty?
Those supports look pretty sturdy as well. It looks like they will do the job just fine.
