Growing A New Tomato Specie In My Garden

I brought back some tomatoes from my last trip to Cameron Highlands. The tomatoes were bigger than the cherry tomatoes and I took some seeds from a tomato to sow in my garden.
I wanted to try because the tomatoes were of a different specie.
 Tomato plants are prone to pest, especially the white powdery type of pest.
 My tomato plants started off very healthy.
 They started to flowers.
 A close up of the pretty yellow tomato flowers.
 Due to the heavy rain and insufficient fertilizer, plants yielded very few tomatoes.
 The tomatoes could be easily counted. There were lots of flowers but very few tomatoes.
  Can you see the green veins on the tomato?
A beautiful gold tomato!
 From gold to orang red with green veins.
 From the plant to the mouth.
 From these batch, I only managed to harvest a handful of tomatoes.
All too soon, the tomato plants were infested with this white pests. I waited for the rest of the tomatoes on the plants to ripen before I pulled out the diseased plants.

As far as God is concerned

there is a sweet, wholesome frangrance in our lives.

It is the fragrance of Christ within us,

an aroma to both the saved and the unsaved all around us.

  11. We have trouble with blight here on our tomatoes which also effects potatoes and grapes. The latter is a big problem which they have to control well being a wine producing country. We have many types of tomatoes here of varioua colours, I am inclined to keep to the ordinary ones though I have grown yellow ones. Have a good week Diane

  14. My husband is very attentive to his tomato plants, watering them every day. The flowers are just developing and there are a few tiny tomatoes. We look forward to harvesting them later in the year. Whilst my husband looks after the vegetables I'm enjoying the flowers indoors and outside. Your peace flowers and gardenias are lovely.
