First blush today, 59 days after transplanting

seems like a long wait, but it always does. This from an Early Girl, living up to her name. I have 4 of these plants, each loaded with about 20-25 tennis-ball sized orbs. Along with 20 other plants of differing varieties. Gonna be some serious canning happening here in about a week.

time to pick.

I'd have to take it now before the birds find it.

I bought an early girl at home depot before the flowers were on it... kind of a small plant then. I have 5-8 tomatoes on it currently. The first tomato doesn't look like it's going to get any bigger and it feels like it is taking forever to turn color ( weeks now) and it's still as hard as a rock. In mean while 2 cherry tomato plants are turning color.

I hope this early girl puts out some more flowers and tomatoes... I was expecting more off of it. I only bought this as a back me upper incase my heirloom plants didn't make it.

Between what I don't eat fresh and giving some away... I plan to sun dry them. I've never canned before, but I LOVE sun dried tomatoes... I can't keep them for long... I eat them like potato chips.
