Oh Happy Day

Post  NanSFG on 5/29/2015, 2:47 pm

I have been wanting the "volunteer" tomato plant in my yard again.  They had small tasty tomatoes.  A friend had given several tomatoes from her plant, but I have not planted them yet. 


Surprise #1.  I needed more tomatoes for our salad so we went to a store that stocks local produce.  For the first time I saw my small tomatoes.  They were called "current tomatoes".  


Surprise #2.  Yesterday I was weeding in one of the places that used to have those plants.  Then... found a worm.  I had thought all the worms had left my yard.  It was immediately captured and put into my first SFG.  He quickly disappeared into the mix.  I wonder if/when it will have babies.


Surprise #3.  As I continued to weed, I found a wilted "volunteer" tomato plant in the bunch of weeds that I had just pulled.  Would you believe I didn't have any good place to put it.  So I added a trowel of compost to a pot with old nursery mix and dead plants.  When I went to check it after dark, I had to rescue it from 2 large slugs.  This morning the tomatoes plant is still going strong.  Hopefully it will take root.  It will have to stay in that pot until I have time to make another SFG.
