The Tomato Challenge

The other day my wife brought home a couple of tomato plants that she had been given. Now me and my older gardening partner (let’s call him “The Sage” or simply “Sage”) do not have a greenhouse and had decided not to grow tomatoes as it is likely that the results in this climate would be fruitless.

Not expecting a bountiful crop a challenge has been set – the first one to grow a red tomato of at least 2cm in size will win a fiver off the other. My plant is here at the house while The Sage has custody of the other plant up at the vegetable plot. Now he has a south facing wall but I sneakily took the stronger looking plant, though looking at the plant below you may not have guessed it.

Well, the bet is on so the challenge has begun.


Love to hear what you think
