My beloved tomato plants finally yielded some ripe tomatoes and my bell pepper plant had some mature peppers. I dont know if you will be able to tell from the photo but the tomatoes and bell peppers are really small. I mean really, really small. I have no idea why they turned out like this. I fertilized and watered and loved and petted until I am almost sick of them. But they taste great! I was really happy with the taste. And if the size isnt much, not to worry, the quantity will more than make up for it. I have about 3 times this many more tomatoes and peppers still ripening on the vine.
