Finishing a Story
We 'went away' for 3 weeks in January & the tomato wouldn't be able to ripen on the plant, so I thought I would take it with me & see how long it would take to ripen on a window sill.
My husband was nervous about us bringing a vegetable through customs to the US, but I didn't receive any questionable looks.
The photo above is of the tomato on January 18th in the window sill in Cape Canaveral, Florida - yes, clear across the country!! But it still wasn't fully ripe, so I wrapped it back up & it went on another journey with us...
We'll see what happens this year with the tomatoes. But it was kinda something special being able to eat a homegrown tomato in the middle of winter!!
