The harvesting process began. We officially have balcony grown tomatoes! These beauties are from the Cherry and Beef Tomato vines. I have to say that it has been wonderful having the chance to eat fresh tomatoes right at home from our own balcony garden.
The Cherry tomatoes are so sweet that you really want to eat them all at once! The Beef tomatoes...I know that you are probably wondering and thinking that they are not exactly "beef size". Well, they are not...and honestly, a relief to me as I was a little worried about the size the tomato vine would grow into...They are delicious though. This could be the result of the unstable weather and cool Summer we have had here in Toronto this year. Could that be right?
August is here already. Let's see how many more tomatoes we get before the Fall. Growing tomatoes in a balcony has been such an amazing experience...and of course a huge sense of achievement. I would personally do it all over again next season. But would not get a Salsa tomatoes vine...because it did not produce any tomatoes...so far. Want to see the whole process? It all started here back in May, then flowers appeared in June and then the first small tomatoes and big tomatoes.
Love balcony gardening in the city!
