bonsai tomato

believe it or not, this is just about as big as this tomato plant will grow...less than a foot tall. it will branch out more and get fuller, but it won’t add much in height. it’s one of four “tiny tim” plants i’m growing this year, just starting to bloom.

That's so cute! Will the tomatoes be equally tiny?

I second Potted Farm. That got to be one of the most adorable things I've ever seen! And, to further the previous question, will it even *grow* tomatoes? Do enlighten us! :)

potted farm--supposedly the tomatoes will be about cherry size, maybe slightly larger. it does seem like they should produce tiny currant tomatoes right?

firespark--yup, it grows tomatoes...i've seen pictures where these plants are loaded with what looks like way more tomatoes than a tiny little plant could even support.
