First tomato




It's kinda funny but this is my first tomato I've ever grown by myself. I decided to buy some Heirloom container plants this year even though tomato plants are the ugliest, stinkiest things around. I went out to visit them today and they all seem to be on the brink of dying or have some sort of cootie...leaves are turning yellow and have worms but I'm too lazy to buy the stuff to kill em.

So here it is, my first and possibly my last tomato of the season. Hopefully the other little guys will turn red before the plants decide to die. It's only about the diameter of a silver dollar but I'm such a proud wanna be gardner.

That is simply the most beautiful tomato shot I have ever seen.

Good work on both the tomato and the photo! :)

It may be small but that's the cutest tomato I've ever seen! I love the green on it's little head =)

Good job with the tomato, gotta start somewhere right!

I hate to sound repetitive, but I agree with everyone above. It is absolute perfection in a tomato! But let's get to the good stuff...you've got some mad photography skills there, baby! Nice use of your lens, darling!

I hope it tasted as suculent as it looked on the photo. Thanks for sharing! ;)
