Life of a Tomato Plant

This is the first time I grew vegetables! and pretty excited about it *smiles*
We have 2 varieties of tomatoes, mint, basil, tulsi (kind of Indian Basil; Ocimum Tenuiflorum) and kari-patta plant. Enough to start your mini vegetable garden.
I have seen these leafy plants grown often by my mother and grandmother. Tomato plants really excited me most, as I never saw how it blooms and come on our salad plates! 
Here goes the various stages of the same I noticed.

left: Seedless Salad Tomatoes ; right: Cherry Tomatoes

notice the small yellow flower comes first which turns to mini-very mini tomatoes

gradually they grows; these are Cherry Tomatoes

same process for Seedless Salad Tomatoes too
they gradually grows green, turns yellowish orange and then red

Cherry Tomatoes ready to pluck; fully ripe ones will come in your palms easily with one touch. If you need to pull them, that means they are not ready completely.
