I did some work in the garden on Sunday afternoon, and as I was carrying compost and equipment back and forth, I noticed a new plant growing out of the stump in the middle of the grass. It looked awfully familiar, this plant, with its notched and pointy leaves and its fuzzy stem.
I walked by it about three times, noting it each time, before I finally stopped and took a closer look. Was it possible? Could it be?
I finally crouched down, pulled off a leaf and smelled it. Then I giggled.
Yes, people, I have a tomato plant growing out of a tree stump in the back yard. And I swear I’m not responsible.
