Commencing tomato formation!


The first tomato to set this year! I was very excited to see this little green tomato, especially since we have had such a cool, rainy spring. It was even more exciting to me since it is a new variety that I'm trying for the first time. It's Costoluto Genovese, a small, fluted Italian variety with lots of flavor. A friend grew it last year and I saved some seed from a couple of her tomatoes, hoping that they would grow at my house. Even though they do really well for my friend, I'm still not sure I'll get very many fruit. See, my friend lives out in the valley where summer temperatures are somewhat warmer. But I have hope. This is very promising.

The first tomato is always exciting! Good luck with the new variety, I hope it's just as tasty from your garden as from the valley.

Isn't it exciting! I love this stage, when the first flowers set and you know you're going to have some yummy fruit or vegetable soon.
