First tomatoes from our balcony

Over the past weeks, our cherry tomatoes has been ripening nicely on the sunny balcony. It has been so hot for several days (up to 40 degrees) that I needed to water them twice a day (and of course I use organic fertilizer at least once a week). Apart from this they seem to be very happy.

And exactly a week ago we collected our first crop! The children ate most of them – they are delicious! But I did not forget to take out some seeds and let them dry – for the next year. Because if you remember, I chose my tomato seeds very carefully and avoided hybrids that cannot reproduce.

Our Abraham Lincolns are growing nicely as well. Compared to the small cherry tomatoes they are already huge! I can’t wait to taste them 🙂
