That's right. My one tomato.
Isn't it pretty? Here's a closer look...
And actually, you can see his tiny little brother behind him! I'm hoping that now the plant itself will grow so that we can get more than one tomato at a time. And more than two total tomatoes!
We have had a real journey with tomatoes this year. We planted tomatoes and herbs and peppers. Kind of a spaghetti sauce garden.
We planted our first tomato many weeks ago. And it was growing pretty well. It even had a little tomato on it!
We planted it in a topsy-turvy (which is working really well, BTW) and we moved it from one spot to another. And then it fell. Right on top of the main plant stem. :-(
So, we planted a new tomato in the topsy-turvy (that's the one you see that is almost ripe!) and I took the main stem of the old tomato and put it in a vase of water.
And it started to root! So, we potted it. See the little tomato?
The plant doesn't look great, but the roots appear to have taken. Maybe it will grow, maybe it won't we'll see.
And I couldn't resist sharing a shot of my Anaheims. Do you think they look ready to pick?
Also check out the cutest little cayenne pepper!
I'm looking forward to using some of this produce one of these days.
Next week - what's happening in our front yard. In the meantime, check out An Oregon Cottage for her weekly Garden Party.Pin It
