I don’t have a green thumb and I’m not organized enough to put seeds in the ground. Yet, I’m blatantly aware of all the positive things my daughter could be learning from the whole ‘plant a seed, see what happens’ scenario. After all, it’s science at its best. But alas, I’m just not that adept when it comes to living green things that require forethought.
So, this year, I spotted a healthy looking tomato plant at my local market. (note: I did buy seeds last year but have NO CLUE where I put them). I thought, why not? I’ll buy the tomato plant, we’ll plant it in the garden and hope for the best. It also happened to be a cherry tomato plant and my child loves cherry tomatoes so if we’re successful, she could potentially have her own home grown organic cherry tomatoes at a fraction of the store bought cost. So, potentially cool and after all, one of the things we do as a family is try to be green so this sounded like a really good idea.

Growing Veggies – Where is the cherry tomato plant right now?

Well, you’ll all be happy to know that the cherry tomato plant made it in to the soil on the same day as it was purchased. This is what it currently looks like. Pretty healthy, huh? Over the course of the blog, I’ll try to remember and keep you all posted on how the tomato plant is doing. It will be our own little science experiment.

      Hello Tonisha, thank you so much for your positive feedback! I hope you enjoyed my little blog about going green and planting your own vegetables with your children. It’s amazing how big the tomato plant has grown and we still haven’t been able to eat any yet. They’re still all green! Hope you’ll visit our website again soon.
