28h x 40w (inches,) $1150

A friend gave my husband several tomato plants and he decided to grow them on our back porch.  We didn’t realize we were supposed to pinch them back, so we ended up with four 20 foot plants that completely took over the space! Eventually however, they did yield some beautiful fruit and I made sure I photographed the result.

Cotton fabrics, thread, and batting. Raw edge collage. Machine stitched.
