My first tomato

I posted earlier with my first tomato when I first saw it coming in. Here it is now. There is another one the same size right behind it and a bunch growing in now.

Cool @rocket . We’ve got quite a few tomatoes coming in on our plants too but they are all far from ripe yet.

My uncle grows tomatoes too. Some years are more productive. 2021 has been rainy and as such we’ll eat more tomatoes than planned.

I certainly don’t have that much!

We do raise quail for eggs and we always have lots of them to give away.

I’ve never eaten a tomato, they just don’t look appealing to me.

I have had tomato/vegetable juice, tomato soup, tomato sauce and ketchup, just never eaten an actual tomato.

I used to grow onions, tomatoes, green beans, and jalapeños. But then my plants got a disease that comes back every year I try to do it now. We’ve decided not to grow vegetables anymore. It’s too bad

Well done. Both the jalapeno and the tomatoes look very healthy. Can’t wait to see them when they’ve fully matured.

I have. We thought about changing over the soil but changing it all out is simply too expensive for us. We’re both disabled with 3 kids

Fun story. Mr. Star’s friend hates tomatoes, because when his grandpa came to America, he didn’t speak any English. He had heard stories about apples and how delicious and sweet trey were. He knew they were a round, red fruit. So he went to the market first chance he got anf bought a round, red fruit. He was so excited to try the apple, but when he bit into it, is was salty and squirted juice everywhere because he accidentally bought a tomato. He was horrified, and after that he taugjt all his kids and their kids to hate tomatoes.
