Look whats forcing its way up through the tarmac behind the flower bed just inside the paddling pool area.
Unfortunately, we think this tomato plant has left it a bit late in the year to make it through to the fruiting stage.
What a shame! If it had germinated earlier in the year, we could have potted it on and sold it at our plant sale. Alternatively, we could have let it grow on and had real Hamworthy Park produce available at our September produce sale!
Perhaps this was someone’s leftover lunch? Either way, it’s an interesting and unexpected addition to the park!
The Wednesday volunteers meet every Wednesday in the Park at 10.00am outside the Park Cafe – just turn up and join us for informal gardening activities, litter picking and general maintenance, or contact us here.
