proof of life

I am so excited, I might wet myself!!
What we have here is a genuine, grown from seed, heirloom tomato! The gardening gods must have taken some pity on me and my 20+ tomato plants and decided to throw me some hope, in the shape of a tasty, juicy tomato!
Here is our ghetto planter. A leftover impatiens bag, repurposed. Plants that were going to be pitched, because I have used every available inch of space in the garden and outlying areas...
...naturally these are the first to show signs of tomaotes!
If I'm lucky, I'll get a few before Labor Day!! Woo-hoo!

It's been real slow growing this year. Too cold. Too rainy.
