Well, it’s official I am now a farmer. Yep, I decided back in the spring to buy one of those upside down Topsy Turvy tomato planters and plant a tomato plant. I dreamt of a huge harvest of tomatoes to share with the entire neighborhood. I knew in no time at all I’d be enjoying fresh tomatoes on my hamburgers, making homemade salsa, and who knows, I might could even start my own ketchup business. My tomato plant was going to be the envy of all farmers in the area.
I have cared for my little tomato plant, even making sure it was cared for while I was out of town. Finally, after nearly 4 months of watering, fertilizing and loving my little tomato plant, it produced… its one and only tomato. I’m just not sure what I should do with the monster I’ve created? Who knows … maybe feed the world?
Yip, that’s it. About the size of a marble. I put the army man there so you could get an idea just how big this baby is. Needless to say … I’m officially retiring as a farmer.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to go find my salt shaker. I’ve got a tomato to eat.
