Tomatoes Update

This is an update on my tomato growing project, in which I've got six plants of various varieties planted in the backyard, just on the other side of my kitchen. In fact, in a few of the pictures you can see a glimpse into my tiny kitchen with it's little white tile table and four chairs.

Pictured above is one of my first actual tomato fruits, about an eighth of an inch or 3mm wide. I've had a lot of blossoms, but many of them have dropped off. My red cherry plant has got several of these set, and I'm going to be carefully monitoring the others.

Apparently you can make wine from tomatoes, but I assure you, all of these are intended for fresh consumption, tomato sauces, and the odd roasting as on a pizza.
