I know, it seems a little late in the season to be getting my first tomato, but this is my first time growing vegetables and really I feel quite proud. Gardening this year has been quite an adventure. There have been some definite ups and downs (sorry to all the plants I killed along the way!). In the end though I really have learned a lot. I am already browsing seed catalogs trying to decide what tomatoes I want to grow next year.
I have four huge tomato plants, all full of medium sized green tomatoes. I was shocked to see one of the plants sprout up so much more than the others, it is about six feet tall currently and still growing! In about a week or two I should be up to my neck in ripe tomatoes.
