I took this photo (in harsh morning sunlight) to show how my teeny little tomato seedlings have grown! The two in the back of photo are Yellow Pear plants and are nearly as tall as my diminutive 5’2″. The plant in the foreground is a Better Boy and is also staying healthy and pest-free for me. It’s a tomato jungle on such a small balcony. I did have two more Yellow Pear plants that a neighbour took off my hands, thankfully. It’s such fun to watch something grow from seed!
Upon closer inspection this morning, I found this teeny, pear shaped tomato — hardly larger than a pea — emerging from a bloom. How exciting. :) Here’s hoping for great weather so that they all ripen nicely as they grow. I have plans for some chutney and relish for the ones we don’t gobble up. I can’t wait to take that first bite.
