Edible Balcony Update – First Ripe Tomato

Well, the tomato plants went in on August the 26th and at last some fruit have that first blush of colour! The tiny toms are ripening quite quickly after that burst of heat on Melbourne Cup Day. The larger variety of Tub Toms obviously still have a way to go before they’ll be ready to be picked.

My first tomatoes are just starting to colour up…
how good do they look? But will they pass the taste test?…
