|So much promise|
|Delicious goodness trying to hide|
|One plant with fruits at many different stages|
|The first ripe cherry tomato|
I almost got to taste the first ripe tomato, but Mark beat me to it as I was waiting for it to be perfectly ripe. I guess I'm lucky that he captured it above only moments before it disappeared in his mouth. I did have the second ripe cherry tomato early this morning though, and I have a keen eye on the next two that should be ready tomorrow afternoon if it is another warm day like today which hit 28ºC before a storm came through. The forecast is the same for tomorrow, so hopefully there is enough rain to give the garden a deep soaking.
The other thing that is exciting me about tomatoes at the moment is that I encouraged two of my colleagues (one who claims to kill everything) to grow tomatoes, and on Melbourne Cup day they were telling me with so much enthusiasm about their tomato plants. Growing veggies is so rewarding.
