First tomato!

Hard to believe that my beefsteak tomato plant looked like this four short months ago.
And started yielding fruit three months later

That swelled and blushed in the sweet July sunshine

And today yielded lunch!


  1. super awesome! i'm maybe a day away from my first tomatoes!

  2. Exciting!

    The best part is that I had been doubting whether the plants would give tasty, edible fruits. I had saved the seeds from a generic beefsteak plant purchased in a big box store. A friend of mine had done the same and got fruit that was hard and tasteless. No such "luck" here - nothing but big, succulent tomatoes!
