Only two of four plants took and they were both tomatoes. They grew and grew veeeeeeerrrryyyy slooooooooowly all summer long. Finally, in August, we noticed some little tiny Roma tomatoes starting to grow. We've watched them over several weeks. This week they are FINALLY ripe enough to pick! I'm afraid the four green ones you can see won't ripen before it frosts, but we'll see.
I'm guessing it took so long for them to grow because the spot they are in doesn't get enough sunlight. And the problem is, I think it's the sunniest spot in our yard! So, our gardening experiment will have to continue next year--when we'll be REALLY adventurous and maybe start six or even eight plants!
I was trying to get a picture of two of my cuties with the tomatoes and this is was they gave me. You can't even see the tomatoes!!
Not-so-green thumbs up!
