Day 104 / Day 12 - Welcome to the world, little tomato

Well, guess who decided to show up today?

It's Day 12 for the tomatoes...5 days later than the seed pod said it'd show up, but this little guy seemed determined to make it into the world. Interestingly, Aerogrow puts a couple seeds in each pod, but in this case (as well as the golden harvest one), it looks like only one sprouted. Not necessarily a bad thing, because when they grow large, the instruction manual says to thin them to one plant a pod anyway, because they get so big.
This one still seems a bit frail, and time will tell if it will survive, but here's hoping the grow light will inspire some more growth.

In other news, I finished the tomato soup today. As with most soups, sitting in the fridge for a day or two really brought out the best in it.
