Once I had thrown a rotten Cherry tomato in one of the earthen containers. I forgot about it, as usual. One day, there was a tomato plant in the container. It grew and grew, occupying the entire space and touching other plants too. I called it a big bully!
One lovely day, the plant started flowering. Later the flowers became fruits. And how many! The plant became heavy with fruits, and had to be tied to support poles/pipes. The plant continued to grow; covered the support pipes. When I praised it, it blushed.
It blushed so much that the fruits started turning Red. I plucked the ones that were turning Red, and felt proud and blessed to have the plant in our garden.
|Lovely colors, uh?|
|Gerbera flowered, at last!|
