Proud Parents

After weeks of careful tending, and hours pouring over the internet to hunt down the latest pruning strategies and staking strategies, we are so happy to show off our new bundle of joy!

Isn't he a beauty? He's the very first tomato! He's an heirloom variety (I think?) called Rose Quartz Cherry. As he ripens over the coming weeks, he should turn a deep rosy-pink colour.

Looks like he'll soon have a few brothers and sisters...

...and eventually an entire clan of cousins!

I can't wait to eat him!
(Wait, that metaphor just got weird...)

Aarth! We have yummy tomatoes too! I have some itty bitty ones in the hanging pot that we already enjoy and some heirloom tomatoes along with rommaine lettuce, broccoli and strawberries too! It's me Sabrina by the way :-)
