runty tomatoes not so runty!

Back when I transplanted the cosmos and marigolds into the front bed, and the largest of the tomato seedlings into bigger pots, I stuck the littlest runt tomatoes into the big planter next to our front door. They were ones that were I thinned out. I hate thinning. I can't stand to throw little plantlings out.

And here they are, kicking butt! Go guys go! Soon I'll have to rig up some sort of support. They're on the west side of the house, so they're getting plenty of sun — no Wall-O-Water for these dudes.

You can't really tell from these pix, but there are even marigolds under the tomatoes, sprouted from a bunch of last year's seed I tossed in there.
