The first cherry tomatoes of the season are worth a mention but are hardly worth a ritual to welcome them.
These were hiding almost down at ground level but were given away by the light of the evening sun.
I wish I could tell you what variety this is, but unfortunately, I’ve lost track of what varieties of cherry tomatoes I have. Earlier in the spring, I planted the variety I grew from seed, ‘Jelly Bean Grape’ and guess who promptly bit off three of the four plants?
If you guessed Mr. Rabbit, award yourself something, because that is correct.
He left one plant, so I went to the store and bought some Sweet 100’s and a yellow variety, I think, to replace the others. I’m not for sure on those varieties, so don’t quote me. And I’m not sure which variety I harvested this evening because I didn’t clearly mark which plant was which. I know, that was lazy of me. My only excuse is I was so distraught over the rabbit eating my tomato plants that I wasn’t thinking clearly when I replanted with new plants.
We can rule out the yellow variety, after that your guess is as good as mine.
Without much ceremony, I ate these two promptly.
In a few weeks when I harvest my first big red tomato, then we’ll have a ceremony of the first tomato!
