My 1st tomato

My tomato plants were the first plants I started to grow (besides having flowers.) I have 3 tomato plants that I started from seeds and they were my babies. I will post pictures of them in another post. This tomato plant was already started when I bought it. It was about 8 inches tall when I got it. Though I did not grow this one from a seed I am still quite proud to see how much it has grown! And of course I am proud to have my 1st tomato is growing. This tomato plant started in a planter when I bought it but I recently had to transplant it into a 5 gallon bucket. The planter worked great to get it growing but tomato plants get big I am finding out!

Welcome to my garden

I have recently taken up gardening. It has been fun and rewarding. My garden is a little different though as it is all on my deck in planters instead of being in the yard. I am learning about gardening as I go along and started this blog to share some of my plants with everybody. It all started one day when I went to Home Depot (and I forget the reason I went there now but it wasn't for plants haha) and went through the lawn and garden department on the way in the door. I strolled passed the display of seeds and had a sudden urge to grow a tomato plant. My family loves tomatoes. So I got the seeds and a seed starter kit and started some tomato plants. This is how my garden started! It became very addictive.
