Tomato Ripening: Part 2

View Part 1
Saturday
Sunday
Harvested
The second part of this series isn't as long as I thought it might be for two reasons. First of all, I realized on Sunday that the tomato was not turning orange and that it might be a yellow tomato. This was a surprise, but not unexpected since I never knew what type of tomato this was to begin with. Secondly, my husband will be traveling and taking the camera with him, and since the tomato seemed pretty ripe, I decided to pick it and take a final picture to post here. I'll have it ripen up a bit on the window sill for a day or two more before I slice into it. It's a large one, weighing 1 lb 3 oz. There is one more ripening on the plant, and then another green tomato of fair size. There are also these two tiny ones that probably won't make it before frost.

Those are some very nice, big tomatoes. Before this summer, I never knew tomatoes were different colors, but I think the varieties of tomatoes come in some many varieties of reds and oranges and yellows.

I saw in one of your latter blogs that you were saving some seeds! If you want, this whole month I will be talking about saving seeds from all sorts of plants, including... Tomatoes, Peppers, cucumbers, Snapdragons, and Prairie Mallow!
