I have the great fortune of having a tomato weed in my back yard. A weed, of course, is just a plant growing in a place it doesn’t belong or wasn’t meant to grow. One day about a month ago I was enjoying some mild weather outside after work when I noticed a small plant in my flowerbed. Initially I thought to pull it, until I noticed little green balls all over it…
It was a tomato plant! My weed was a tomato plant!!! I had my very own tomato weed…well, over the weekend one of those small balls, which grew into large balls, turned red.
My first tomato of the season!
Now I have a bit of a black thumb (good with humans, not so much with plants). But left to its own devices in my landscaping, I might just have fresh, delicious tomatoes to eat with salt and pepper (and share with my veggie loving dogs) all summer!
