Cherry tomatoes from my Mom's vine! and she'd already eaten two - so that makes four already. Huzzah!

I had to take a picture of them with my cell phone to prove they existed. We almost drowned this particular plant; we thought we had unplugged the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot but had not actually done so. When my mom noticed the standing water she had me take the bottom tray completely off the pot. Then we put the pot up on a milk crate for even better drainage. The soil did dry out but a lot of the tomato's leaves looked pretty bedraggled, so I wasn't sure if she'd get any fruit. But there you go. Thus the cause for rejoicing.
