Something was moving in there

Earlier this year, I noticed a plant sprouting in my garden right between two roses. I was about to pull it out but thought it looked like a tomato so I left it. I was so busy chasing that mangy, rat-faced, no-good, low-life, beady-eyed, scum-sucking, fruit-stealing squirrel off my peach tree, I didn’t notice that it was growing. The next time I looked, I had a tomato plant. It was about two feet high with little flowers so I left it there. Today, it’s out of control! I don’t know what happened but all of a sudden, it’s HUGE, and loaded with cherry tomatoes. And heavy. I’m constantly tying it up because it keeps growing. Yesterday, I propped it up with some fencing I had and it’s still falling over. I didn’t plant it. I didn’t feed it. I didn’t want it. There are rose bushes under there… dying. Denis thinks that when that mangy, rat-faced, no-good, low-life, beady-eyed, scum-sucking, fruit-stealing squirrel ate my potted cherry tomatoes last year, he was hiding out between the roses and left a seed in the ground. OMG, maybe he pooped it into the ground! Either way, he’s a pig. The tomatoes are starting to ripen but they’re inside the plant and I can’t get there. It’s 14 feet long and 8 feet deep! I’m not sticking my hand in there. Don’t snakes eat tomatoes? Something was moving in there yesterday and it had a tail.

    If you were any shorter we wouldn’t be able to see you…lol…
    Denis might have a good theory as to why you have tomatoes in with your roses, but don’t be surprised if you find an apple and peach tree somewhere in there growing. That could be where the squirrel stores his loot from your yard and it could be his tail you saw…

    This area of your yard looks nice. I think what I like most about your yard is the white picket fence along with the beautiful flowers surrounding it. You look like you are having fun. Just be careful because with all that you are standing in you never know what’s there. Oh and I love cherry tomatoes. My grandmother use to have quiet a few cherry tomato plants and she let us pick them and enjoy them every summer…
