One Hot Tomato

Meet Father Abraham.

While not extremely huge, Abraham has been chosen to be the father of many nations. He will hopefully provide the seeds for next year's crop. He is one of the tomatoes that was harvested from the volunteer plant that came up in Mom's garden this year.

Sadly, it seems as though the transplanted plant is not doing well at all. I blame this partially on my brown thumb, and partially on the fact that it was transplanted after it had gone to vine. If I had found it earlier we could have had much better luck with it.

For instance, these tomato plants seem to have overgrown the marigolds I planted. And guess what? NO SQUIRREL PROBLEMS THIS YEAR!!! I do believe my little miracle device, as well as planting marigolds in the same bed, worked wonders!

Oh, and Hubster for you naysayers out there? Nanny, nanny, boo boo!
