Can anyone stand another picture of my grown-from-seed Petitebec tomatoes? They are the most exciting thing happening in the garden right now. Every day I collect a dozen or so but today the count reached 26. I shared a couple of my March-sown plants with my in-laws earlier this season. Their tomatoes are doing even better than mine. They have more fruit and the tomatoes are reaching a bigger size (almost like a small plum.) They shared some with their neighbour Andy who declared them to be the tastiest tomatoes he's ever had. And, as my mother-in-law pointed out, Andy is Dutch and knows a thing or two about gardening. A nice compliment indeed.
