I've been wanting to grow vegetables for the longest time. The longest time. Eventually, I'd love to have a full garden. But I'm starting off slowly. I bought one small tomato plant, a container, and some potting soil. I gave it a smidgen of plant food, and I've been checking it almost every day, watering it when the soil feels dry, watching it get bigger. The fact that it's actually getting bigger somehow seems miraculous to me.
At first, its leaves didn't even touch the first ring on the cage. They've shot up past it now, and I'm sure I'll have to add a stake pretty soon. I know tomato plants can be finicky, but I'm hoping for the best. Fingers crossed.
