It's going to get me ....

Surely everydog has heard about the evil salmonella laced tomato epidemic that is plaguing America ... or is it the world? The one that is forcing restaurants everywhere to post little signs saying they aren't serving them.

Well, while your people are doing without tomatoes, mine are growing them and are just starting to get some red ones.

They started this tomato plant as a teeny slip of a thing way back in March and now look at it. It has taken over the flower bed that it calls home and threatens to take over my little yard. If you click on the picture, you can see it better.

Here I am posing in front of it (Mom made me) at great peril.

Mom and Dad do not remember what they used for fertilizer but they think they may have used too much.

Holy Cow!! That is a huge plant!!! Mom's aren't that big, but there's a bunch of green ones and one that's sort of orange-ish which means we'll hopefully have red ones soon.
Stay safe!!!

Wowie zowie, Copper! That is a mutant tomato plant! Mine is like 5 inches tall and 2 inches wide and it's been in it's little container for like a month. Can I have yours? I wonder how much bigger your plant is going to get!
