We had an awesome storm a month ago (on my birthday in fact) with rain sheeting down, thunder and lightning, winds strong enough to break trees etc. In our garden it didn’t do anything worse than knock over some of my tomato plants so a few branches broke off.
I saved one branch and put it in a vase: it had a bunch of small green tomatoes and looked rather pretty. It survived way better than I expected. Not only is it still alive, it has put out roots and the tomatoes on it are actually ripening.
I wonder if they’re only ripening or if the smaller ones might be growing, too. I didn’t think to take a “before” photo so now I have nothing to compare to.
