Here is the story of my miraculous little cherry tomato. My tomato garden is at the back of my property. Living on almost 3 acres that's quite a distance. In the front of my house is a long rose bed, heavily mulched every year. For the last 2 years, this random tomato plant sprouts up right next to my Princess Diana Rose. I always find it weird because I wonder how a tomato seed got down thru that mulch and comes up every year in the same spot. Well I'm pretty sure it's a white cherry. The odd part comes in that I have never grown a white tomato until this year and it wasn't a cherry. So being me, I sit and chew on this all of the time. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.... So I decided this year that since that little plant was so determined to come back every year, I would taste it. It was very good. So I saved seeds for it and have named it after the Patron Saint of gardens and gardeners. St. Fiacre cherry. It's on my grow list for next year and will finally have it's proper place in the big garden. I am posting pics because I am wondering if it's a yellow or a white.Let me know what you think.

Saint Fiacre was a holy hermit to whom people came in droves to learn more about the Christian faith. Concerned about their lack of food and shelter during their visits with him, he built a hospice and farmed the land to supply their needs. His hermitage is located in Seine-et-Marne, France. Feast day, Sept. 1st.
Prayer to St. Fiacre:
Saint Fiacre, intercede before God for all gardeners, that their gardens may produce well and be a place of peace and meditation. Amen
