Looks like summer came early to the garden… Here we are in the middle of April, and I just spotted my first green tomato on the vine!
I actually spotted five green tomatoes, and since they’re all setting on determinate vines, I’m guessing they’re Principe Borghese grape tomatoes. I started this tomato from seed over the winter, and the name has long faded from its plant marker. It will be like a little surprise unfolding as the tomatoes start to ripen over the next couple weeks!
My other “winter” tomatoes are covered in yellow blossoms as well… beautiful little signs of good things to come.
I’m just counting down the days to my first ripe tomato… soon!
