Marigold's, Tomatoes, and Strawberries

A few days back, maybe a week even, I mentioned that Mom sent me home with Marigolds to plant. Wednesday afternoon, I finally had a chance to snap a picture of them. If you look close on at the petals you can see some rain droplets and a little visitor, too.  Isn't he cute? If you'd like to see a bigger version, stop by my photography blog.
Next, we have one of our strawberry plants. You can see the little ones growing, slowly but surely. Last year we bought a lone plant at Lowe's. This year three grew back. I read somewhere that you could do something to the runners and get more plants. Anyone care to explain?

Last, but certainly not least we have one of our tomato plants that my Dad gave us. This one is a yellow tomato. I don't know the specific type. He also gave us three of these and a purple one. I think four plants should be a good amount for us as long as they grow good. How many would u plant?

I shared this post at Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop. Stop by and see what all the other Farmgirl's have to say.

Just cut the runners and transplant it to another spot. If you let several runners growing on the same plant, it is said to reduce yield because they use the energy to grow another new plant instead focusing on fruit production.
