The Straggler

As I was pulling weeds around the blueberry bush the other day, I noticed a curious little plant that looked very familiar to me.  Upon closer inspection, I found that it wasn't a weed at all.  It was, in fact, a tomato plant!  Last year, I discarded some rotten tomatoes where this little fellow has taken root.  It is right by the fence post behind the blueberry bush so I will be able to keep it safe from the lawnmower and weed eater.  It is quite a bit smaller than the tomato plants in the garden, and it looks a little beaten up; but I have faith it will grow to produce fruit.  Besides, its a Wisconsin 55, so anything is possible!
