>Garden update… p.s. Rain, I won

>I went out a little earlier to assess the damage from the rain yesterday, and all things considered, I’m a genius. Oh, and everything is fine. A tad waterlogged, but maybe it’s experience for the indoor water garden I’m planning in the Fall.

My tomatoes are about 2 feet tall now, that is, the ones I grew form seed from Chapters. They’ve actually suspiciously outgrown the Scotia I bought from my step-grandmother (?) at the market, but I suppose I can justify that by saying that I have about 4 hand full-sized tomatoes happily busting out on that baby.

I’ve got to replant pretty much every seedling that grew from my Vesey’s Seeds online overindulgence. They are ginormous…and I’m scared that the larger ones might pick on the smaller ones. Think…Veggie Tales in the locker room maybe?

I’m quite happy about the progress that my newer plants are making, my Calamodin Orange, my random tropicals, and my beloved Croton. Don’t tell the others, but that one definitely is my favorite! It came to me quite boring and green, with it’s spikey long leaves. Then after I mistakenly sunburned the little Princess (or Prince….I haven’t figured out how to work gender specific questions into a conversation with it yet), it’s decided to go full blown into verigating itself. Right now it’s green with yellow, but it’s starting to go yellow with green. Soon hopefully it will turn red… it’s so conflicted!!

BTW Rain, I won. I’ve conquered not only you, but your friend the wind. My patio is whirlygiggy once more!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

ahem.. cough cough..

Rob just looked over at me:
“What are you doing? You’re typing a lot.”
“Oh yea!”

I doodled a bit earlier when I was bored, and wanted to capture the sheer glee that Rob has been getting over the strawberries, now that they’ve decided to turn sweet finally.

He’s spotted 2 this morning when I was outside, but I’m holding out for a couple more to ripen later today. I think he may be a little disappointed with the crop so far, but, though I may be all powerful, I haven’t figured out how to will my little plant to start spitting pints out at him. Wow! I’m off my game! First the Croton, and now the strawberries 😦

I sahrry 😦

I like writing about what my world is, whether that be gardening, cooking, drawing, my relationships, job, and yes, sometimes I ramble about how much I love writing. And also hate it. :)
