My Glacier tomato plant now sports seven baby tomatoes, all on the same stalk. The yellow blossoms keep converting into small, hard, green little ellipsoids that grow visibly bigger each day. This is terribly exciting to me, even if the plant had a “head start” by being planted a week ago with three tomatoes already in evidence. But this suggests that, at the very least, I haven’t halted its vigorous advance with my neophyte gardening.
I’m not really sure how long a tomato takes to mature once it’s appeared—the dates given for these plants seem to be measured from the time you sow the seed of the plant (something like 60 days), although others call this “time from transplant”. I’ll observe carefully and figure out how long these guys take to ripen.
