…but, where are the tomatoes ??
I have friends who have been very successful growing herbs and vegetables in pots, so I decided I would try my luck this year.
Here are my 6 tomato plants. I bought them when they were just 5” tall and the seller assured me that they would bear delicious tomatoes. Now it is 4 weeks later and look what I have…four pots with tall shoots of green leaves. Growth is a reality but not a tomato in sight…or even the hope of one.
My brother-in-law (who is a VERY successful gardener) stopped by about two weeks ago and he warned me that the plants were not getting enough sun. “They will get very leggy”, he said … and was he ever right ! But I still believed that I’d get a tomato or two. That hope is getting dimmer and dimmer.
I have no place that is in direct sun at my house because of all the tall trees, so I guess I‘ll just enjoy the foliage. It looks like I’ll have to go to the Farmer’s Market if I want any “home grown” tomatoes.
