My Tomato Plant Journey – Part 4

I already knew I was clueless when it came to my little tomato plant project, but I have now realized just how clueless I am…

My tomato plant has outgrown its little stake,  it just isn’t cutting it any more. Poor plant was falling over, again. So, my wonderful husband offered to pick up a tomato cage at Target on his trip out to pick up lunch. Judging from the size, we both agreed on a small tomato cage.

My little plant is so spindly, I broke a leaf steam getting it into the cage. But it looks secure, and I was pretty happy with how my plant is doing until…

Visiting my friend Amy, who is the inspiration of this whole project, I see that her plant is GIANT! OMG – I almost spit out my water when I saw her plant. It is about twice the height of my weakling and the stalk is like 10xs as big around! She even has a little tomato growing! It is THRIVING. So now I not only feel lacking in my plant skills (again), but I realize that the pot and cage I have are going to be too small if this plant ever really gets growing. Man, I have no idea what I am doing here. I wonder if my little plant will ever produce fruit?

But it is still alive and growing… 🙂
