Up until I put those tomato seeds into the pot I'd had a good run with the garden. I'd lost the mint more than once to caterpillars but it always bounced back. The caterpillars ate my pak choi + baby spinach but I quickly got over that as I wasn't too attached to them. But when those darn bud worms ate ALL my tomatoes in both of my pots I cried. Real tears of frustration.
So this post is an ode to my final tomato. After the pruning of a lifetime the tomatoes (mircacuoulsy) grew back and I had quite a few months of tasty toms. This is my last Tiny Tom...I ate it right off the bush (checking for caterpillar teeth marks first of course) and it was delish...
Of course, just to keep my ego in check, the darn caterpillars got to eat my last two Roma Tomatoes. Darn you caterpillars *shakes fist*!
