Ten days ago, I planted tomatoes I bought at the local HEB grocery store. So far, they appear to be doing well. They’re growing. Two of the three each had one tomato when I bought them. The third has caught up and now has two tomatoes.
I’m still cautiously optimistic I’ll have red tomatoes later this fall. But I’m also not holding my breath. There are a lot of things that could happen. Insects, birds, dogs, just to name a few.
It would be nice if I had a big, beautiful fall tomato crop to end the gardening season on a high note. I just won’t be too disappointed if that doesn’t happen.The tomatoes on Oct. 3.
