Last summer we tried growing a roma tomato plant.

We had a problem where several of the bottoms turned brown before they were full grown.

This was a very rewarding experience. I was surprised that the plant gave us more tomatoes than I could keep up with for so little work. I had help planting it from my dog and  neighbor kids. After that I only had to remember to water and pick the tomatoes when they were ready. Thanks for reading!
