Garden Produce: Tomatoes

My mother is quite a green thumb. From September last year onwards I badly wanted to try my hand at vegetable farming. So thought of planting Tomato seeds with some dried leaves, kitchen compost waste as manure. My tiny plant has finally grown and has one small flower shooting out. It was sheer pleasure to see the plant growing from one small salping to a mini shrub as it is today. Cannot wait to see it grow and bear Tomatoes which I can use for my daily kitchen preparations.
News! News! - My Baby Tomato Plant (you can see the yellow flower in the picture - her first child) gave birth to three healthy tomatoes this May. The tomatoes were nice and plump. My parents are extremely happy to see the Tomatoes growing. So am I !
