I was going to title this post “A Bowl of Mater’s ‘Maters” but I thought it’d be a bit much. Anyway, as hot as it’s been lately here in Virginia, Mater has been producing around 4 to 6 red almost ripe tomatoes a day for the past couple days.

The newest leaf is partially uncurled and the next new leaf is spiking up. Big difference since my previous post about it. Here’s a close-up of the leaf. It has a brown mark on it which you can see in the photo. I’ll have to do some research to see what caused it. Here’s a… Continue reading Monsterra leaf progress
No, I didn’t give it away, I decided that it needed a bigger pot. So, yesterday I went shopping and found a gorgeous new pot. It should suit well for a few years.
