My Peep is a Flake 1

 SHE has never been good with plants.  In fact, SHE is considered the 'kiss of death' to any plant SHE's been given.  But this year, SHE decided to try to grow some vegies in pots.

There was GREAT excitement when this cherry tomato actually grew and ripened.

As it was the VERY first tomato SHE's ever grown in her long
life, SHE bought a little gold ring box.....

And took it to Morning Tea to  proudly show all of HER green-fingered friends.



  1. Hey girls, that IS some excellent dirt on your peep flake. Cherry Tomato in a gold box......bwarrrrrrrr he he!

  2. Wow, that's really funny! SHE was obviously very proud of herself and I bet she used extra strong fertilizer to get this bumper-crop! BWAR HAR HAR. You are now in the drawing!
    Happy New Year!

  6. Our mom can totally relate, and is very impressed with that cherry tomato. All we have in our yard are succulents and geraniums! HAHAHAHA!!

  7. Very nice presentation. Just don't forget that it's in there. It'll turn a lovely shade of blue-black in no time and smell delicious.

  15. Awww!! We think that is adorable and we are very proud of your She!!

    Happy New Year
    Love Ruby & Penny

  16. Oh Daisy, Bella and Roxy, your mum is definately a flake. Of course our mum couldn't even grow one cherry tomato so of course, she thinks your mum is pretty darn good. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  17. Bwahahahaha! Your Peep is so funny!


  18. Oh that is funny cuz my mom is the same way. She cant grow a thing. CONGRATS on the lone cherry tomato!!


  19. That is quite an exquisite BOX for a tomato! BOL! We hope her green-fingered friends were duly impressed - as are WE! Come to think of it, we don't think our Mom has ever even TRIED to grow anything EDIBLE! Occasionally, she puts out an ornamental plant and if it survives without her help, then it gets to stay. Otherwise, it's the compost heap! BOL! Congrats to your Mom on the tomato growing! Although putting it in a special box could definitely qualify as FLAKY! BOL!
    Thanks for sharing your flaky peep moment with US!
