The first tomato for the year

Soph went out this morning and took this picture of our first tomato to begin turning red.  It is an heirloom variety, Mr Stripey, and is our first year growing it.   It should be ready for picking in a couple more days.  If we like it then we will save some seeds for next year.   

We have three different heirloom varaties that we are growing this year, two of them are new to us.  In addition to the Mr Stripey I’m once again growing the purple Cherokee that I enjoy.   Our other new variety is a yellow pear cherry.  I enjoy the bite size tomatoes but Soph is crazy about them.
