That is good news!! They look perfect! It was a sad year for tomatoes here. Too much rain, and not enough heat. Very depressing. I am happy we had a great year, last year- we still have many jars of sauce downstairs. Enough to get us through most of the winter. Yesterday, I noticed the plants were looking a little better- maybe I have a few tomatoes in my future? You are so cute sitting on that tractor.;)

. . . A ripe tomato is not to be taken for granted!

So here they are, my Alaskan Fancy, which win the prize here for the earliest ripener of all the early tomatoes I grew this year.

TA-DA!!!

See what I miss by not checking into TEG in over 24 hours! All sorts of things happen!

Congratulations Thistle'! I'm sure you put more than 24 hours worth of effort into these. I mean, just look at the size!

Alaska Fancy, you say? Tatiana claims they are indeterminate but Sand Hill Preservation lists them as "SD" - semi-determinate. Do they have flowers with those ripe fruits???

Four to six ounces, open-pollinated - - might be Early Girl competition!!!

Wow Thistle, those look wonderful. How did they taste? :drool
They tasted good! We had the second one on our pizza tonight. I ate the stem end that I sliced off before putting the rest on the pizza and it was tomatoey and tender, with no hard core. Really yummy after being baked too!

They look just perfect! :drool You weren't too far behind me. I got my first big tomato about 2 weeks ago, but mine were unusually late this year anyhow. The tractor figurine is too cute. Is that you driving it? ;)
