day 253: green tomatoes

Green TomatoesBack in April when I lost the peas, I figured the experiment was over.  However, once I pulled out the pea plants, the tomato plants started growing far better.  I let them continue on even though I didn’t have much hope for them.   I got lots of flowers on them, but no fruit.  I assume I wasn’t doing a good job pollinating them.  A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to end the experiment and move them outside, but I was too busy with other stuff and didn’t get around to moving them.

Today for the first time I saw green tomatoes growing!  I counted four of them.  There are other flowers so I gave the vines a good shaking.  Maybe more will grow.
