🍅🍅🍅Lola's Secret Garden Treasures🍅🍅🍅

Not long ago, we made the discovery that a volunteer tomato plant had taken root on the side of our house in the most precarious of places. It was wedged in front of a gate that rests against the house, and it only had a few inched of space in which to grow and thrive. To make matters worse, it was next to the concrete path that we use to take our garbage, recycling and green cans to the curb. Therefore, I carefully dug it up and placed it in a terracotta pot, and it is now thriving.

As of this morning, there are 18 tomatoes growing...
And there are many more blooms that are about to turn into little tomatoes!
This would be amazing if I had intended to grow a tomato plant, but if feels miraculous that this plant decided to take root on the side of my house in one of the least hospitable locations.
🍅🍅🍅I tend to this plant every day, and marvel at its resilience and beauty🍅🍅🍅


  1. My goodness, how lucky! And I am impressed that you have 18 tomatoes growing! Jeff gave me two Purple Cherokee plants that I planted in pots and put on my deck. After two months, I have one tomato growing on each plant. Not very impressive, and I'm not sure why I got such a measly crop? Yours look fantastic!

    1. Isn't that just amazing?! I have tremendous respect for this plant– its desire to thrive in such a wretched location is so impressive! I can hardly wait to taste them. The only thing that I know about its provenance is that it came from our house, and since we buy organic tomatoes, I have to assume that this is from the tomatoes we bought! I hope that your Purple Cherokee plants start to produce more!
