Post Bill Post

Given what things *could* have looked like this morning, after a bit of selective pruning, some florists tape, and crossed fingers, I managed to salvage most of the balcony plants.  Time will tell if some of the bent and weakened stalks will survive, but hopefully, there will be enough live plant to allow those tomatoes already formed to ripen.

It’s difficult to separate the tomato plants from the background trees, but you can get an idea of just how large these Yellow Pear tomatoes have grown.  They are now secured to the post, rails, and BBQ. :)

  1. You did a wonderful job saving the tomato plants and I’m sure you will be eating those yellow beauties in no time.

    I hope so Crafty — I’ve babied them from seed, and they’ve been so much fun to watch grow, not to mention that I hope we get at least a taste of fruit off them. :)

  2. Glad to hear you are safe and sound. Hurricanes can be no fun not matter how big or small (I have family that is routinely in the path of them). Your flowers look untouched- how nice of the tomatoes to shelter them. :)

    Wasn’t it, though? We’re used to big blows here in the Maritimes, but hurricane force is no fun, no matter where you are. :)
