The first tomato of summer 2015/16

My first harvest!

My first harvest!

One tomato does not a summer make* — but it’s a start! Okay, so my foray into blueberry self-sufficiency was not a success, but I’m on a roll with the tomatoes. I picked the first one today (on a fork, above; on the plant, below). It’s a variety called Honey Drop, a mini yellow Roma type. And if you’re wondering … yes, it was very tasty, albeit not very filling.

Here it is 'in situ'.

And more are coming!

Still green, but coming along nicely.
