Our First Tomato!
The tomato plant has produced its first fruit! We have a tiny, green tomato growing on one of our plants only 12 days after I first planted them. Actually it is the plant that my son snapped. I was nervous about the wiggly part of the stem. I tried propping it up with a dowel but that didn't seem to be working, so today I dug that plant up and buried it on its side up to the break. My mother-in-law told me that you could do this with tomato plants, I had no idea! Apparently many people plant them on their sides and the shoots will grow up off the stalk like that. Amazing!
