I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

Weekly photo challenge: cherry (tomato) on top

19 Comments

A year or two ago I planted some cherry tomato and swiss chard seeds.

The chard either didn’t survive, or wasn’t suitably interesting, because I didn’t take any photos of the mature plants, but I was VERY excited when I picked my first cherry tomato.

Ta Da!

  1. Looks so perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well done, Elaine.

  2. I hope it was the first of many.

    • Yes, there were quite a few – I seem to remember that those plants were good producers. I haven’t done it again since then – mainly because you have to be very dedicated, I think.

      • Do you remember a couple of years ago you posted a beautiful photo of a pot full of daffodils and other flowers, and I was inspired to go out and buy some bulbs? They are all shooting again and now have flowers coming. I always think you when they start growing.

        • Yes, I remember that! I think you told me that they came up the first year you planted them and then I forgot to ask again. I’m glad they are surviving – daffodils are such lovely flowers. My pot of little daffs that I posted the picture of was given to me for my birthday many years ago by a friend, so every time they come up I always think of her.

  3. I have a few, but so far the plants have cost me more than the produce I have got from them. I’m sure that’s not the way it should be.

    • I often think that myself – buying seeds/plants/ compost/pots/netting/supports etc and all the other paraphernalia required for vegetable growing, not to mention the time required to tend to them, is costly. I could have weekly deliveries from Waitrose and still be quids in! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • As there is only the two of us it doesn’t make a lot of sense to grow loads of veg. But I will carry on with the herb patch as I love picking fresh herbs.

        • I’m not very successful with herbs. The main one I would like to grow is mint, so that I can make fresh mint tea, but I just can’t keep them alive for some reason.

          • Mint likes to be moist. Usually takes over so I grow mine in a pot, but there is some growing rampant in this garden that I have left to flower – the bees love it.

            • I have mine in a pot (for fear of it taking over the garden, but with my track record of keeping it alive that wouldn’t have been going to happen!) but I think I haven’t been keeping it moist enough. I’ll dispose of the current, nearly dead, one and start again but make sure I give it more water than I have been previously. I thought I was watering it quite a lot, but obviously not enough!

  4. Looks like a BIG cherry tomato!
