First Tomato 2010


This is an unfortunately record, being the latest I have gotten my first ripe tomato.  In case if anyone was wondering, this was on the 1 gallon milk carton upside down garden planter.

    You beat me getting my first tomatoes, so consider yourself lucky. Those do look like some great tomatoes though.

    I must be missing something?? First ripe tomato on 8/20? I started picking in May.

    memmsnyc, thinking of saving the first one to harvest seeds for next year…not sure how many more I will get 🙂
