Pardon ME... while I BRAG...

23 Babies in the  bucket garden, all from slime on the counter....
HOT OUT OF THE CAMERA, 1:08 PM Sunday....
It may be true a watched pot will never boil.... but it is not true a WATCHED tomato will never GROW.
We spend a lot of time watching these little babies grow from the slime on the counter. see labels on side bar Bucket Garden

WOW, those are some very nice looking tomato plants. I have got to start saving counter slime and try this out. I don't have much of a green thumb though so I doubt I'll be as successful.

Wow! They are beautiful and sooooo green...perfect for Fried Green Tomatoes....but I think they are better when bright RED! Makes me want to run out and fertilize and water again the ones I planted last week. I guess I'd better WATCH Em' for awhile! Congratulations....you'll be so glad not to have to pay the price at the grocery store! That's what I'm looking forward to....homegrown is so much better!

No fair, You live in Florida and anything will grow in Florida, in any season. I bet Bob can plant a dollar bill and a money tree will grow, Yikeeeeeeess.

SquirrelQueen said...

Yum, I'm thinking fried green tomatoes. Those babies are beautiful, brag away.

Ann said...

Watch them in the morning, go away and play, come back in the evening, you probably will notice a difference.

I never watch my tomatoes.

It looks like you are well on your way and here I am without so much as one seed planted.

Great job!

"All from slime on the counter" made me die just a little inside.

I can plant and tend and cultivate all summer long and end up with a handful of gnarled fruit that fits in the palm of your hand.

Beautiful tomatoes. They make my mouth water. You will enjoy them so much when they ripen. And you will get them almost free. No $3.29 a lb. for you! Are you going to name them The Slimy Tomatoes?
