my sugar lumps_tomatoes!

They're finally turning red!!!  Purchased a small tomato plant seedling from the Union Square Farmers' Market probably a month ago.  It was of the "sugar lump" or "Gardener's Delight" (looked it up online...haha) variety.  They are little baby tomatoes/cherry tomatoes. The plant was less than a foot tall when I bought it and now it's 3-4 ft tall. Insane!  After watching the blossoms turn to tiny pea sized tomatoes, it seemed like it was going to take forever for them to turn red, but finally they are getting ripe.  Looking forward to adding them to my salads. Definitely really rewarding to grow your own food to eat.  Have a bell pepper plant starting to grow. Hope that works out too
