One tough tomato

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

Stacy Byford of Manila was surprised to find a tomato plant growing out of her concrete steps leading to her front porch. The plants started coming through in July and just kept on growing. Byford said it was ironic the tomato plants she planted in the dirt did not survive but this one is thriving. She started watering and fertilizing the plant and it is covered with small and a few large green tomatoes. She is hoping the tomatoes will get ripe soon. The family is very watchful of the tomato plant when they come up the steps. Byford said even the birds have not bothered it. (Town Crier photo/Revis Blaylock)
