Prolific tomato June 25, 2008

Well. It sure has grown. Remember the picture I took of the tomato growing in a neighbor’s sidewalk crack? I took the photo on may 16.

Here’s a photo I took yesterday, June 24..

Amazing, no? I took a cutting from it yesterday, and I hope to have it root. This is an extremely hardy tomato, which I believe to be a cherry based on the size of the blossoms.

Growing nearby, there was a nightshade growing.

Does anybody have any explanation as to why a tomato is growing so well in a crack in the ground, let alone, without much human interaction? Thanks.

    You’ll wake up one day and find its taken over your house. 😦

    Nightshade is crazy poisonous. My older neighbor lady had to go to the hospital after handling chopped up foliage with bare hands.

    Also, some tomater varieties are just hardy. You are probably right for cloning that beast.

    Nature finds a way.

    Even so, that’s a hell of a tomato plant. I’d be interested in buying some seeds from that bad boy.

    Just imagine what that thing would do if well-fed and pampered!
