The Tomato Growing Throw Down
A few weeks ago Steve came home with one of those upside down tomato growing contraptions you've probably seen on television ads. I don't quite get why growing a tomato upside down in a plastic tube should produce a better crop of tomatoes and this thing seriously offends aesthetically speaking. But, he was convinced he would have a huge harvest because, well, he saw it on TV. So, we decided to have a tomato growing throw down- he with his new school, upside down, plastic thing and me with my old school, Beefsteak in a clay pot with dirt.
Its still too soon to call this thing, but so far my tomato has set more flowers and just yesterday I noticed......
a wee tomato!
