Loved the tomato story, but I can well imagine it in this day of not having to do anything for ourselves. Maybe one day she will try again with both the bags and the tomato plants.
I was once busily telling a non-gardening friend all about her ceanothus and how they responded well to pruning, when I snapped off a large branch from one side, making it all lopsided!! Talk about feeling awful, and no where near as knowledgeable as she had thought me to be. I will probably remember it for far longer than she, who has probably forgotten all about it now!
