Our first baby tomato

We have four tomato plants growing in the greenhouse. They have been flowering for a few days, and since there are no bees in the greenhouse the flowers have to be pollinated by hand.

Each morning we take a small paintbrush and gently brush inside each flower, move to the next flower, and so on to pollinate the plants.

Success! This morning we have our first baby tomato starting to grow!
