Life of a Tomato: Week 4

Our Black Krim tomato is now one month old. It's filled out a little more over the last week, but it's growth rate has definitely slowed. I suppose our recent cool nights are responsible for its slow down. Nightly lows have been in the mid to low forties (4.4 to 7.2 c) and have even dipped into the high thirties (3.3 to 3.8 c) once or twice.

That's one lovely looking tomato. Yummy! Any idea when it will turn red?

I've read that withholding water can force a tomato to ripen faster. I'm thinking about trying it with my plant.
