First tomato of the year, 2009

First tomato this year, from a six-inch plant put outdoors on Mother's Day:

Two weeks later than last year, perhaps due to the cool and cloudy May this year.

You're doing great! I was very late getting tomatoes in. This area had lots of rain right as everyone was planting and many people had to plant as many as three times because their crop was washed out. I have tomatoes on the vine, but they aren't even close to ripe yet.

Thanks! We're in the middle of a unusually cool and rainy spell right now, so I'm waitin' to see if the rest of my green tomatoes ever turn red!
