Fought the brave fight

As many of my valiant readers know, we love to garden. We love to plot out what we are going to plant and where. We are, however, not opposed to volunteer plants making an effort to grow (except maybe squash; they have a tendency to take over the world). We have about six volunteer tomato plants growing among the peas and carrots right now. Imagine our surprise when we found a tomato plant growing in the crack below our front door step. We decided to let it flourish, if it could.

Yesterday, I noticed that it is now starting to wither. I'm afraid that the lack of regular water and the amount of concrete surrounding it has made its lifespan a short one. I'm now upset with myself that I didn't get pictures of it in all of its healthier stages. However, here is one from yesterday.

Rest in peace, little tomato plant. We're sorry you didn't make it, but we were wondering how we would use the door if you made it to a full-sized plant with fruit.
