Saw a tomato thread today and thought about posting this in there, but didn't wanna hijack the thread so I'm posting it in here.

About 6 or 7 years ago I was in the nursery and there were some tomato plants that had seen better days. They were yellow, limp, and just downright sad looking. I asked about them and the owner said, "You can have all 4 flats for $4."

Well of course I grabbed them.

I had a spot in the yard that was dedicated to a garden, but our chocolate lab demolished it (which was gone by this point) so I thought I'll plant them and if a few make then great, if they don't oh well... it's only $4.

So there I am with four flats of plants and just started digging and planting. I really didn't expect any of these plants to make it. Well, low and behold they all did.

Later on in the season I found myself with a ginormous plot of 48 tomato plants producing somewhere around elventy zillion tomatoes a day. I wish I had pictures of it. I only wish we had thought about canning back then. There was just this giant mass of green and you'd pull branches back to find massive amounts of tomatoes ready for the picking.

So the moral of the story is - if you see some plants in the nursery that have been mistreaded, you might can buy them for a song and in return get a bazillion pound of produce in return!

On year my brother was driving by a grocery store and noticed the dying plant. He payed 5 bucks for a pick up bed of dying 6 packs and brought them to a family diner. Most if not all of the plants thrived once they were planted and given a little water. That was a good "flower" year for us.
