Yes! We have some tomatoes

Happily joining the ranks of those with some tomatoes to show off. These are a mix of Black Cherry, Velvet Red and Principe Borghese. These all came from seeds exchanged with Ottawa Gardener in the winter.

Congrats~ I ate my first one on my camping trip! It was sure yummy. They always are after such a long wait:-D

Oh those look wonderful. Black cherry is one of my favorite tomatoes. Mine isn't ripe quite yet, but I see it start to blush so I'll be eating them soon. I'm growing some Ottawa Gardener seeds too, but mine are dried beans. They seem to be doing quite well right now but the harvest won't come for quite a while.

Hmmm... here in the UK mine are all stubbornly remaining green. Is this one of the reasons you left blighty?

Your tomatoes are just beautiful!

June said...

Oh, lovely! And now you're WAY ahead of me on ripe tomatoes. ENJOY!!!

These all look lovely. Are most of them heirloom varieties? I was just reading some of these names in the online seed catalog for Terra Edibles, who specialize in heirloom varieties.

Thanks everyone! Yes, the chance of getting ripe tomatoes every year instead of one in four was a factor in our move to this part of the world. ;-)

And yes, Helen, these are heirloom tomatoes, so I should be able to save seed from them all for next year.
