We had a good run, little tomato plant. Alas, there was not enough sun on the fire escape or enough water slurped up by your roots. Poor guy. I had high hopes, even as your leaves yellowed and fell off I thought it might be normal. It wasn’t. You were doomed.
A few tiny tomatoes were still hanging off your stalk and I didn’t have the heart to dump you in the trash. It made me sad to think about you until…
My roommate snapped this pic:
Even though I can’t sample your delicious tomatoes, I’m glad somebody got to. It warms my heart to know that you supplied a snack and a cool napping spot for a city squirrel.
RIP tomato plant, but long live basil! Even though this pic is blurry you can still see the basil plant going strong.
