Life Is A Pop Of The Cherry (Tomato)

 Relying on the tips of my padded pink fingers helping anything (especially botanical) to grow is usually a no-no.  It's not for the want of careful planning, construction and attention either, but my short-yet-successful list of things I do manage to grow fairly trouble-free include foetuses, leg hair, sea monkeys and impatience.  So hopefully you understand my utter joy at these pictures:

The Cheaper Half bet me £10 back in May that I'd fail in growing some cherry tomatoes (from seed) before the end of summer.   In all,  I  managed to grow 8 of the little buggers, half of which will meet their
demise tonight between two slices of hot buttered toast.  Sadly, however, TCH wrestled the phone off me as I was trying to get the local press involved.........¡

This is indeed front-page news! Congratulations on a job well done.
I'm admittedly envious, since the only thing I can grow in Texas is an abundance of weeds and thorns.

Awesome! I attempted to grow tomatoes once... It didn't work out very well :) Those are lovely. and tasty?

well now that you have been successful- wait til next year! Start with plants from a nursery and you will have even better luck!
I've got six lovely big plants-two of which are cherry tomatoes and they are delish-especially still warm from the sun.

They look wee small. Next time try pumpkins!
