My wife planted three Brandywine toms down in the large garden plot, along with three orange KY beefsteaks almost as an afterthought last month. That’s because these plants, bought from a local store were skinny, almost dead with mostly yellow leaves. They had been sitting outside for about a month before they went into the ground, so they looked pathetic.
Well, fast forward 6 weeks, and now those 6 plants are all about 3ft tall, and already have some small fruit on them. It amazes me how tough tomato plants can be, just give them half a chance and they just take off. Granted this plot is very rich, and didn’t need any amendments this year, but it still is impressive to see them grow like that.
