Quick, Call the Guinness Book of World Records

I think Husband and I have the world’s smallest tomato on our hands. We had just about given up on getting any tomatoes. Even though the plant was still growing tall, the extreme heat this summer took its toll on it. The poor plant was just in survival mode. But then we noticed a small, pea-sized green bud. And now it’s our beautiful, smaller-than-a-penny tomato.

For me, it’s proof that hope is all around us.

And now the real challenge will be figuring out who gets the first (and only!) bite of the little tomater.

Oh my word! That is hysterical! At least one came - I'm quite sure my gardening skills wouldn't have even gotten the plant that far! Ha!

Hey! That's great! That means you guys were able to grow something! Maybe next summer it'll at least double in size so you both get a bite.

Hahah. Split the dang thing! :)

Also, about your comment, you should so start the arabic CD! I have a book and CD that I have not yet looked at, but I think the class will be the kick in the pants that I need!
