The Slow Tomato Race – I Haz Fruits

One good thing and a couple of not so good ones.

Week Nine

Week Nine

The good thing is that four pieces of fruit have appeared in the last week. That means I only need six more to hit my target. Unfortunately five flowers on another branch have died back without any evidence that they are going to turn into tomatoes. This might be due to me forgetting to water the plant over the week, or it might just be the natural course of things: after all there are other flowers which seem fine.

What I also need to learn is how to take close-up photo’s that aren’t blurred. This one, especially in its full-sized form on Flickr, looks terrible. I’ll work on it, and the watering, for next week.
