Finally, after months and months of waiting -- I have two ripe tomatoes in my garden!
Yes, I know today is the first day of fall.....
The first plant was a dud. It grew, then slowly and painfully died, with green tomatoes still on the vine. Then in late July, I decided to plant another tomato plant. This time I chose a Beefsteak. This monster of a plant recently stopped growing at 6ft fall and now its tomatoes are finally turning red.
It was a LOONG wait, but sooo worth it. Nothing like a fresh and ripe tomato from the yard!
