My First Tomatoes!!!

My tomato plants were flowering a lot but very few fruits remained... mainly my fault cos I didn't ensure that the plants had places to creep on. With the strong winds and the extra hot days, some of them died. The wind broke some of their vines and the heat got to those who were too close the ground. But finally last weekend, we fixed up some places for them to creep on; and transferred in some of the other tomato plants from my other pot. Made of discarded pipes, Other Half built our own 'modular' fencing... LOL! Can dismantle and 'uproot' to any location we want.

And ta-da... this is the first tomato ever! Looks big and juicy. My gal asks me to leave it there to see whether it turns red. I read somewhere that organic farming is quite a rave these days. Mine is not quite at that organic level yet but we're trying to plant some vegetables at home. I've got some celery seedlings as well but have not transplanted them yet. Time is a rare commodity these days.... still find myself wishing for more than 24 hours! 8)

I've got my long beans growing outside too, also creeping on a fence of pipes. 8) My second round of beans...
