I have not given birth to these. But still I have spent equal amount of restless days and worries on this plant.
And I very well know that I am in no way going to win "Best gardener in Bangalore" award. Am happy with participation certificate.
And it is not my fault that the plant is not healthy. I can not give it for some fair and lovely cream. Nor can I make the plant drink bournvita. Nor can I whisper grow, grow, grow to it. I water it daily and pour diluted curds whenever the curd has become too sour.
Tomato is having many drawbacks to grow in your kitchen garden. The seeds rarely germinate. And even if the plant is born, the moment it grows a half a foot tall, it will bend due to its own weight and unless we provide proper support, will eventually break. Says something about the life of weaklings
So one tomato in the plant, turning light pink is a celebration for me.
