The Ripening

It was only a matter of time, but at times it seemed like the day would never arrive. More than four months after the beginning of the composting, and almost exactly two months after the tomato plants were first planted, ripe fruit has been borne.

The first one to ripen is one that I have dubbed Tiny Tom. It's about the size of a golf ball.

Additionally, it was mauled by bugs before I abandoned my attempt to forgo the use of insecticides.

Several more, of more substantial size, are quickly approaching ripeness as well.
