Well, not really. Because there ought to be more tomatoes coming.
And really, I thought this was a great deal. At a garage sale, I bought an early version of the Aero Garden. It had never been used, and included the seeds. All for $10. I thought the seeds might be too old to sprout, but there were no problems at all.
I really wanted this to grow herbs in the winter. This time of year, I don't really need to be growing tomatoes indoors, but I wanted to see how well it would work, so I set it up and let it go.
The plants grew well, and then I got flowers. And look! A teeny little tomato.
Later, I'll buy an herb kit or maybe one of the plant-it-yourself kits and I can plant my own selection of herbs. If the tomatoes do this well, I'm sure I'll have plenty of fresh herbs this summer.
