Almost ready to harvest...So, apparently, I bought a Roma tomato plant.
Couldn't be better for my needs.
They're smaller so I'll use several at a time.
There also are a LOT of them.
Whenever friends drop by, I ask them to look at my hanging upside down plant.
All have agreed these are not going to get fat and round.
I think they look like Christmas tree lights.
Orange. And now, finally, red.
I went online and saw they have to soften a bit after they turn red before I collect my crop.
I have bacon and bread and mayonnaise.
How long does it take for lettuce to grow?
Guess I should have started all at once to make a perfect BLT.
(Oh sure, click on the photos - twice - to see more details.)
Mother Nature and I have worked well together on this front porch project.
Each morning as I water the plant, I search for leaves that "look funny" and pick them off.
No bug sprays or insecticides.
I like my 'maters fresh and natural.
