Not So Green Thumb Tomato


It seemed the more I cared for my tomato plants the worse they did. So I decided to leave them alone. One plant survived the long dry summer and then enjoyed the spoils of a soggy autumn.  Last weekend the sole surviving plant sprouted this tomato. I am sure it will not be tasty and will never ripen before it gets too cold, but it made me happy nonetheless.

well, the fact that you kept them alive is further than I've gotten. I can keep succulents alive, and that's about it. Thinking of trying some herbs (yet again) on the back of my stove under a full spectrum bulb...
Let me know how your little tomato turns out--maybe bring it inside when it gets cold?
