This is a tiny flower on a tomato plant I have in the yard. Magic that I got it to grow and magic that it will become a tomato!
When I bought these three tomato plants a few weeks ago I decided I wanted them in the sunny front yard, scoped out that my existing flower bed (with no flowers) was a good sunny spot and after they plants grew a little I planted them.
Today I bowled, met my friend Melody for lunch (she had a surprise from the Easter Bunny for me, it is in the extras), got a haircut and then came home thinking I would water the tomatoes and the other bee loving plants I had in the other bed (we were supposed to get a great rain Sunday...it never happened here!). Anyway, it was about 2 pm and the flower bed was completely in the shade! From the oak tree that did not have any leaves when I planted the tomatoes!! Hindsight did not work! This was not good for tomato plants so I had to scope out the yard again to find a spot that would get sunshine most of the day. The problem of living surrounded by trees. Nothing in the front yard except the new flower bed but I did not want to put them there as the plants I have there are "spreaders". So the backyard, behind the clothesline against the edge of the woods was the place getting the most light. I had in my mind the way the sun traveled across the yard and I think they will get 6 or 8 hours of sunlight here. So I dug three holes and moved three plants.
They kind of drooped a little after planting even though I watered them good. Now they are looking okay. So keep your fingers crossed for a tomato from this little flower! I love all the little hairs on this plant which are tiny too!
