Exception to the Rule

Thursday, December 13, 2012

This is my little tomato plant. It's been in this little pot since last spring. It did not produce any viable tomatoes this summer despite all our tending. However, in November we noticed new yellow flowers and didn't have the heart to pull it up. So here we are in December, having our first real rain storm, and my little tomato plant is working hard to give us its bounty.

It's a little rebel, it's an exception to the rule, it does not fit the stereotype........and its committed and courageous.

I like these qualities! NO FEAR little tomato plant! Way to go! I want to be just like you when I grow up!

Wishing you all a Friday filled with joy, courage, and growth.

    Christmas tomatoes! How cool! Maybe your little plant was aware of your career in special education and felt safe to progress at its own pace.
