Tomato goes wild….

On May 1st we bought a scraggly little tomato seedling from Home Depot for about $2.   It was on the clearance table – you know the one where they put all the half dead plants at bargain price no guarantee they survive the trip home.

Anyway …  this is that plant now….    Photo taken from the steps of our deck:

Two ripened enough to eat about a week ago (delicious) and there are 21 green tomatoes waiting to ripen:

And .. there are many, many more little flowers turning into baby tomatoes……    I think I am going to need some good relish recipes!!

Name that plant …


Another plant challenge.

These sticks with green leaves are just popping up everywhere in my garden beds.   

They don't seem to be joined together unless they are coming from one tuber and joined underground.  They appear really rapidly – one day the ground is barren, the next there is a green top 4 inches high and then the next day it is a foot tall!  Probably about 18 inches tall now.

Any idea what they are?
