Default Solo Tomatillo

My first year trying to grow a tomatillo. I intended to have a couple of plants but only ended up with the one seedling.
I read about the low yeild rate, that is if you are lucky to get anything from a single plant at all.
Well, I pushed on and planted my single tomatillo anyway. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
A little bit of my fat finger pollinating, then I had a few bumble bees give me a hand, so I left them to it. There was also a few ants helping move the pollen around.

4 weeks ago.


Just over a week ago. Husks, husks but nothing within.


Looks like I may get something my off the single plant, as I can see a few husks starting to fill.
Needless to say, I'm a happy gardener.
