|Reluctant model with our garden treasure|
I've tried growing tomatoes many times, with no success. If I was lucky, a few tomatoes would develop but they'd rot at the bottom before they ripened. I wasn't going to try again this year, but my mom gave me a plant in spring so I plunked it in a pot and waited for it to fail. Once again, low expectations must be the ticket because it's my most successful year ever. And by successful, I mean I have harvested exactly one tomato so far. There are lots of green tomatoes, but this is the first ripe one. Neve and I had yummy toasted tomato sandwiches for lunch. I took a picture of the sandwich but it seems I'm not awesome at food photography so I'll let you imagine it instead.

I actually have a second tomato plant: this is a hanging cherry tomato plant. Shortly after I brought it home, it started to whither and die but eventually a happy resurrection took place and it has provided us with lots of cute little tomatoes.
Day 3 isn't really a banner blogging day either. I'm sorry for making you look at my plants. Go check out some other blogs: Shannon, Corinna … anyone else - Dan? Steve? Siobhan? It's only Day 3...
