I Think I Killed a Tomato Plant

I decided a few days ago that something had to be done about the Sunmaster tomato plant that I had planted back in June. The plant had just refused to thrive in its five gallon container. About half of its leaves were always brown and its main stem never grew beyond the thickness of a pencil. It had put on three tomatoes at one point, but they remained small and ultimately rotted rather than ripened. So I removed the plant from its pot, dug a nice hole in my very small in-ground plot (see World's Smallest Vegetable Bed) and replanted it. As you can see by the results, it wasn't one of my better ideas.
