Do you know what mama did?
See these windmills? She bought them for some little anthros that she forgot to give them to and so she uses them now to make the spots where she has planted tiny tomato seedlings that just aren’t growing any larger for some reason (maybe giving them fertilizer too young, mama?) and so this year the tomato plants are NOT well on the way to being sauces and soups for winter, but instead are now at all on the way to becoming anything other than midget plants that might not even make it.
I mean, can anyone out there even SEE a tomato seedling in this photo? Well, it’s there, but stunted.
On the other hand, a tomato volunteer, as they are called in garden-speak, has come up on its own and is about 10-inches high already!
Go figure. Which is to say that Maman Nature does exactly what she has to do and tomato plants will do whatever THEY have to do and so we all should just sit back and WAIT. I’ll bet that if mama didn’t plant anything this season, tomatoes would come up all over the place anyway. What do you think?
I think mama should just go out there and throw a bunch of seeds over her shoulder and see what comes up later. That’s how I would do it
Nobody ever listens to me…
