The plants themselves didn't ever get huge, but when I returned last Tuesday from our trip there were blooms. Now there is fruit! Yay! I am, alas, the only one in the house excited about it as I am also the only one who really loves tomatoes! I have visions of fresh salsa, tomatoes on a plate with salt and pepper, fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil Bruschetta, and my fav... Eating them like apples! mmmmmmmmmmmmmm! We shall see - I can hope!
