Backyard Bonus

This volunteer tomato plant appeared a month or so ago, and is rapidly out-growing all of the other tomatoes confined in their containers. Hard to believe it's making any progress in the rock-hard clay crap that passes for soil in our yard. It has a bunch of blossoms, and I expect to see some fruit soon. Don't know for sure what kind it is, but who cares? It's probably a result of last season's plants getting clobbered by the typhoon that ripped through here on New Year's Eve. It's been fun watching it grow, and I'm looking forward to seeing exactly what I'm going to wind up with. It would be wonderful if it turned out to be that fantabulous orange and green Heirloom I loved so much from last season, but it's probably just another "Better Boy".
