Had the presence of mind to take some pictures of our rather heavy, for our region, snowfall last month.

The first picture is our driveway. Well, it IS under there somewhere. The second photo is of our front bird feeder, which is the one I can see and enjoy watching birds from the sofa in the living room.

Yes, lots and lots of cardinals and they look so beautiful against the snow. Just after I snapped that photo, another crew flew in. After 27, I quit counting. The feeder was awash in red. Awesome sight!!!

This is the last of the yearly harvest 2/19/16. The SousChef will plant a new "Celebrity' tomato plant next month. This one plant gave us aprox. 200 tomatoes, most about twice as big as what's pictured with the last harvest.

Wow, that was one big tomato 'tree', Kay! Very nice. I just went to Home Depot for seedlings today to get some started, but they didn't have any just yet.
Is that a Meyer lemon bush there off to the side?

Good description Cheryl. In all it's green summer glory it was indeed a tomato tree that folded itself in half, and grew upside down perfectly happy. We will definitely buy another "Celebrity" plant when they become available in a gallon container. SC is not so patient with seedling.
The Meyer lemon tree is in the front of the house. That's a dwarf navel orange in the picture.

That is one amazing tomato plant, Kayelle. Texas is no longer able to lay claim to "we grow 'em bigger". Not everything BIG is in TX, by the looks of your plant.
