Last year, Son was given a tomato plant which we planted in a pot and Son was responsible for making sure it got watered and loved. He shared his tomatoes with the Compound and was very proud of his growing skills. My dad also planted a few tomato plants but they didn’t do very well. The soil where they were is very sandy (I mean, we do live on the water!) and tomatoes didn’t like the sand. Son got more tomatoes from his ONE plant than Dad did from his 3.

Dad has taken a page from Son's book and planted one tomato plant in a pot in the ground. His is looking pretty good as well! Dad's plant has MANY blossoms on it already too.
