I've learned a lesson about growing tomatoes. By the time I found my stride, my tomato plant was the weirdest, straggliest plant. So when winter hit hard, I pruned it back all the way to let it have a rest and hope for Spring restoration. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to me, these two babies popped out of the soil.

They do best during the cooler months in the subtropics. #tomato #selfseed

Can't believe how fat some of these lollipop tomatoes have gotten despite the weather being so cold!

Very happy to see new leaves and flowers on my lollipop tomato plant. Crazy weather (hot cold hot cold) a month ago killed all the leaves and I stripped it down to just the stems and branches. I love how nature is so resilient more often than not.
