So you think you have a green thumb....

Post  martha on 8/9/2011, 6:26 pm

But have any of you managed to grow a tomato plant in concrete? I have never had to water this plant, and you can see that it has fruit. I'll be interested to see if the 'maters ripen, although I sure as hell won't eat them. (Refer back to: I have never had to water this plant! Shocked


Admittedly, I didn't actually plant this outside the back door of the restaurant, but the crazy thing is, this is the third year in a row one grew in the same place. This is the first time it had flowers and then actual tomatoes, though.

Alright - ready?

Wow! Just think what it would do if given optimal conditions.

When the fruit is ripe, I would venture to have a taste. You may be surprised.

I'm not worried about the taste - I'm worried about what has been feeding it!

Back side of a restaurant? Hmmm....I'm thinking you could have fried green tomatoes without putting any oil or butter in the pan!

Inevitably every year i get some free sprouting mater plants (usually because I get lazy late in the season when it comes to removing some of the fallen fruit). One of my best producing plants this year sprouted that way.

I have a couple growing near the wood pile. Seems to like it there.

Every year a zinnia grows in a different area in my yard. I planted them once and have not seen them in that bed since. They were my mom's favorite flower so whenever I see it I say "hi mom" Very Happy
