the tomatoes are coming!

Tomatoes on the Vine

Today, I picked the first two tomatoes (the two reddest ones on the left) on my Sweet 100 tomato plant.  A few more are going to be ready in a couple of days.  There are lots of flowers and small fruits growing on this plant and in a week or so, I’ll be harvesting many more.  My other tomato plant, a Yellow Pear, is loaded with about 75 fruit, but it is taking its time in ripening.  It probably won’t be ready for harvesting until early August.  I can’t wait to eat homegrown tomatoes that are sweet, juicy, and flavorful.

Jalapenos

In addition to the tomatoes, I also harvested another 7 jalapeños for Chris to pickle in vinegar, bay leaves, garlic, coriander seeds, sugar, salt and pepper.  This brings our total harvest count to: 14 jalapeños and 2 cherry tomatoes.
