First Tomato

Above is the first tomato from our garden. Summer is officially here.

We had a disappointing tomato crop last year as the garden store mislabeled the plants and I ended up with all cherries. They were good, but nothing like those luscious globes of goodness that are one of summer's greatest pleasures.

I may have overdone it this year to compensate. I have six Jet Star (a nice variety, easy to grow, good size, but not too big, delicious), one heirloom and one cherry. The cherry is already huge. The first tomato, pictured above, is an heirloom.

Can't wait for fresh mozzarella, basil and tomatoes! Soon, very soon.


  1. Looks yummy. Let me know when you have more than you can handle. I only planted one: a cherry that looks as if it's going to be prolific. I hope.

  2. Wow, a tomato on July 1. Amazing! Ours are barely flowering yet.
