Okay, look REALLY close
and you'll see two teeny-tiny tomatoes. See them? They're about 2 days old.I am inordinately proud of these tomatoes. I've taken upon myself to "encourage" tomato production on our single plant & have been going around rubbing the little flowers against each other (I don't know if that makes me a tomato "pimp", but it might), and it's working! Heck, I don't even like tomatoes...but my sweetie loves them, so it's a labor of love to make 'em grow & water them every day. If we wind up with more than he can eat, we can always share them with others. Or I can make tomato sauce if they get really out of control. I saw 2 buds today that were fat & closed ... I think they may be newborn tomatoes. Wish me luck!
