Carbon tomato showing colour

Carbon Tomato

I've had a fair number of cherry tomatoes ripen already but this is the first sign of colour from Carbon. I've already pinched off the growing tips so it can put all its energy into the ripening fruit since I don't think any new tomatoes starting to form now would get a chance to form/ripen before frost. There's a good 15+ tomatoes ranging in size from marble-sized to what I imagine is close to the largest they'll get, just not showing colour yet. There are a few flowers on the tips of the stems but we'll have to have some pretty late frosts to get anything from them.

(Edit - that's a pretty terrible picture. A little surprising how much better the camera on my 3 year old Sony still is compared to the camera on my new Acer. Also I think I'll pretty well exclusively using BlogAway for my mobile blogging. The only real editing I have to do after the fact is centre the pictures and resize. Bloggeroid was very good but there was just more fixing up with formating for the pictures so it was marginally less convenient. At the end of the day I won't be doing a ton of mobile blogging if that's the best picture I can manage.)

  1. Do you know, I actually like that picture because it makes me feel I am practically a tomato!
