September 26, 2017 by Musings from a Tangled Mind You Say Tomato, I Say Duh… You know, this struck me as much funnier than it really ought to have done. It’s sad, really. Because it’s true. Share this:TwitterFacebookMorePinterestRedditLike this:Like Loading... Related
Doesn’t one simply go to a nursery and buy the seeds?
And the right soil, and such?
That’s the way my mother has done it for decades and her garden has always been the best. 😀
The photo seems to show that this guy thinks you grown them already sliced, Wendy1
I know, right!? The article talked about planting sliced tomatoes to get a tomato plant to grow. I’m not sure about that…
The assumption I see is that you can magically slice a tomato, put it in the dirt, and soon (maybe even tomorrow morning if you wish really hard and have a great aura!) there will be fully grown tomato plants there, fully laden with fresh, ripe, luscious tomatoes!
Funny, no mention of those huge, gross worms that I always found eating mine. When I remembered to water them. For months and months.
Ooh, look, fifty-nine cents a pound at Krogers! Available instantly! (Worms not included, sold separately)
I know — I’m not at all sure about growing a plant from the slices. But the article swore it was possible. Why didn’t you spray your tomato plants to keep the bugs away? Goofball. But of course, water helps too, so there’s always that. I’ve never grown any myself, so I can’t really talk. I just steal the fruit of my mother’s labor (ha! see what I did there??).
I was seven, there was a shortage of Agent Orange & DDT in the hardware stores because the military was using it all!
Actually, watermelons were my forte, they grow like weeds! Took over about half the back yard before my dad took it all back with the lawn mower. Never did figure out why he hated watermelons.
Oh no! That’s a shame (about the watermelons, NOT the DDT and Agent Orange). I’m sorry you lost your crop.
Hmmm…. maybe it’s possible?
Maybe. I don’t know about that. I guess it’s possible. Off topic just a bit, but I had no idea cucumber plants needed to be pollinated in order to grow cucumbers. I thought you could just plant the seeds and poof, there you go. But my mother set me straight on that one. Tomatoes don’t require the pollination, but cucumbers do. Go figure. (I wanted to grow cucumbers inside in order to make pickles, but that’s a no-go.)
Cool idea, but she’s right — but, more importantly, you had your heart in the right place — because PICKLES !!!!!!! 😀 🙂
Oh my god, my mother used to make refrigerator pickles with cucumbers and onions — and I haven’t had them in years. BUT she told me if I came up with the cucumbers (they have to be FRESH), she would make it again and best of all, show me how. So now I have to figure out how to grow cucumbers without a garden. 😦
Growing cukes without a garden? That’s certainly a pickle alright. 😀 😀
Ha! And now no refrigerator pickles. 😦
😦 I’m a fan, too. 😦
