The tomato plants

From the ashes of disaster grow the roses (tomatoes) of success!



Remember how my tomato plants were ravaged during our crazy hail storm? Well I am pleased to say that they have really come back to life! I had four plants, all with blooms on them when the hail hit, and only one retained any blooms after the storm.

A few weeks ago they looked like this:
(three plants in the long planter and one in the large one)


All the plants had flowers, only one showing tomatoes so far though


NOW:


I can't believe how much they've grown! I'm really glad I took that picture a few weeks ago to compare.

I don't think that I've ever really seen a plant grow the way it looks on the package, except for these tomatoes. They look really close to the picture:




Now we're just waiting for them to ripen!

ps...bonus points if you know the movie referenced in the first line of this post!

Nice tomatoes!

Is it a Mary Poppins reference?
