Dismal crop

Remember how excited I was in June when I bought my tomato plants and got them potted?

I had such high hopes for them as I watched them grow ...

Out of eight plants, I ended up with just five cherry tomatoes. Very disappointing!

My next door neighbour has just one tomato plant and she had lots of tomatoes. She even spent a month in Japan visiting her family and still did better than me!

I have one plant left with a tomato ... I'm not giving up on it! Here it is today.

We've had a couple nights of frost ... that is one tough tomato!

You did better than me with the plants. I had none! However, I have a friend that gave me plenty of tomatoes this year and I will say....I'm learning to like tomatoes. :) They are much better tasting from the garden then the store.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. Come back anytime. :)

Do believe the rainy summer did not help at all. Too bad, let hope next summer things will go better.

You can probably take him in now and let him ripen on the counter, away from that frost!
