Noun – an old-fashioned term for a tomato.
Synonyms – tomato
I love my tomato plant. I really, really, love my tomato plant. I love the way the leaves smell like fresh, green aromatherapy. I love how sweet the little, yellow flowers look before they morph into baby tomatoes. I love how I never put a stake in it and it is turning into a clinging vine, with stalks and leaves taking over one entire side of my balcony railing. I love watching the rows of tiny, bright green globes turn into juicy, red mature tomatoes. I love how there are currently over fifty “love apples” growing on it. I love how my plant has proven wrong everyone who said I couldn’t grow tomatoes on a Northeast balcony. Yes, I love everything about my tomato plant.
