1st Roma Tomato

My first Roma tomato, grown in a pot.
I don't usually grow tomatoes. I have found that if you grow one, it will either die or not produce any fruit. If you grow two you will have more tomatoes than you can eat, give away, force your friends to take and/or compost. And they attract pests by the bushel basket full.
A few nice fresh tomatoes from a farm stand are plenty for me.
But I got curious about this little dwarf tomato plant. I put it in a large pot, outdoors, and it grew into a bushy little plant, about 12" high and started producing tomatoes. Neat.
