Wordless Wednesday #183 ~ A Tomato Close-up





          This is 1 of only 2 tomatoes that my 6 tomato plants produced!  When I went to the Toyota Recycling event this past spring, someone GAVE me 6 tomato plants.  I brought them home and stuck them in large pots on my deck and watered them often.  Only one plant took off growing and produced blooms.  Only 2 of those blooms made a tomato while the rest of the blooms dried up.  I'm guessing they didn't get pollinated?  One of the tomatoes started ripening last week.  I brought it in before the insects and birds beat me to lunch.  It sat a couple of days in the kitchen until I noticed a spot on the bottom.  I decided this was a pink tomato and it was time to enjoy it's wonderful garden raised flavor.




It was delicious!

  2. Great shots! Your tomato doesn't look very ripe, though. I prefer to leave mine on the vine to ripen longer. Thanks for linking up for Wordless Wednesday!

  5. That tomato looks like a heirloom variety, I bet the flavor was wonderful. If you get more blossoms you can take a Qtip and touch each of the flowers back and forth to pollinate. In other words, mix up the pollen. Maybe you would get a few more tomatoes.

    1. Yes Karren that's what I'll need to do next year and not depend on butterflies and bees like I always have. I think this is a sign of what will happen when all our little bees are killed off. Too late for this year as the vines are beginning to die off already.
