Maybe there is hope...

After my post last week about my slow growing garden, I went out to find two yellow flowers on my tomato plant. So, maybe we'll have a tomato or two!

Hey Amber: This is great news! How excited you must be. I thought I would share a tip with you. As you know, my garden had its trouble starting out but I too started to see hope in the form of yellow flowers on my tomatoes. My plants were still small when I started to see the flowers. My friends husband told me that if I wanted my plants to grow fuller and produce more tomatoes, I should pinch off the flowers. He said that it takes a lot of the plants strength to start flowering and getting tomatoes. At first I wasn't too excited about that. I finally had hope and I didn't want to push my luck. Well needless to say, I followed his advice and now my tomato plants have grown so much larger and it looks like I will get a bigger crop then I had ever dreamed of.

Hope this helps. Oh and by the way, awesome facebook page. I just love your blog.
