home grown tomatoes

I love, love, love tomatoes, especially "home grown" tomatoes. The past couple of years I have tried growing my own tomatoes from seeds with no luck. When I first planted the seeds, the plants grew, but once they got to a certain point they just died. So this year, I decided I would buy a couple of tomato plants and plant them.

They have done really well so far and I just went outside to water them and guess what? I have my first tomatoes!!!! They're not fully grown or ripe or anything like that....they're tiny green tomatoes, but that's more than I can say for the tomatoes I've tried to grow in the past.

I'm getting sad is it that something like a tomato plant gets me this excited?

AAB - Yes, I have seen the commercials for the Topsy Turvy and I've been wondering if it really works. Do you have one or know anyone who does?

I hate tomatoes. I wish I liked them, but I don't.

Nothing sad about it. I tend to find home grown veggies tastes so much better.
