I have a tomato! But it's still too small to eat :)

Somehow I still haven't managed to kill the tomato plants. A couple of them have flowered and I currently have two tiny tomatoes.

As they're still smaller than peas (photo above taken with macro!) it will still be some time before I can eat my very own home grown tomatoes.

You can see the hole through which you water the plant.

And here are some tomato flowers.
