Autumnal tomato

Back in September, a seedling appeared in a pot where I was trying to grow wild garlic. It didn’t look like a wild garlic plant to me, however.

At the same time, I was curious to see if it was in fact a tomato plant and would continue to grow.

Well, it certainly looks like a tomato plant now and will need repotting soon. Then the next milestone will be whether it starts producing flowers, which I think it will, going on what I can see right now!

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    Are you going to grow it indoors (greenhouse?) or outside? I really doubt it will survive the first frost!
    Good luck!

      Yes, definitely wouldn’t survive the first frost πŸ˜‰

      I’m going to keep it on a south-facing windowsill (where it has been all along). Other tomato plants inside are still flowering and producing fruit, so I am quite hopeful.
