I planted everything, then waited. As I expected, nothing happened above ground at first, because the plants were putting their energy into growing roots. However, about ten days later the plants started growing taller and the tiny tomatoes and peppers turned into larger ones. Last week I noticed the remains of a tomato that a critter had taken off the vine. It didn't look very red, but I guessed it had been ripe enough to appeal to a bird or squirrel.
Since the tomatoes were obviously ripe enough to be attractive to something I started checking the plants each day. I found a couple of red fruits buried under some leaves on a bush variety plant, but the easy-to-see ones weren't turning. Today I took a good look at the plant and realized the fruits weren't red--they were yellow!
