Until yesterday. Yesterday I finally got my first red tomato.
I bought some fancy tomatoes from the woman who built my veggie boxes. She sells starts in the spring. I bought one that is red with black shoulders (see above) and one that is pink (see below). So far they have really just been green, but I think I'll get a few more of the black shouldered variety. The other plant only produced a couple very sad looking tomatoes, I'm not sure they will get much better than this.
|Hello pink lady, we're waiting.|
We can start at the very beginning. Radishes and carrots. The radishes grew quickly, but just as quickly they either rotted or were eaten by some rodent or something. The carrots, long forgotten now, actually were pretty successful. Including this one, my favorite.
|In truth, I think this came from the farmer's market, but cute!|
|Broccoli, tasty but not much of it.|
|Brussel sprouts, lots of leaves by no sprouts + making some animal happy.|
|It's starting to cool off, will this ever be edible?|
|I'm pretty sure these are red peppers, but I don't even see a pink tinge!|
