When I was tying up my tomatoes on Monday, I noticed that a few of the plants were blooming. It’s always exciting to start seeing the lovely yellow flowers on the tomato vines. So far, only a few of the plants are blooming, the rest look like they’ll be blooming in a week or two.
I also noticed that I had a few tiny tomatoes on my ‘Tess’s Land Race Currant’ tomato. These were planted because I figured a tomato this small should provide early tomatoes for salads. I may have been right, we’ll see how long these take to ripen up.
I won’t be eating a ‘Brandywine’ anytime soon, but it looks as though I’ll be eating a tiny tomato in early July!
