The tomato plant we bought from one of our favorite nurseries in town now:) It is about 4' tall and then some give or take. It is adjusting to it's new home and I was told to water it every day really well for a week and then cut back some after that. Crossing my fingers she takes! I also bought some bamboo stakes for support while she grows some more.
poor tomato plant was stepped on by one of our fence workers while they were installing it last week. I brought it in and place it in some water, changing the water every day and in three days this took place. See all those white roots---eeeeekkkk! Also, more leaves have grown in, when I first received this plant from a friend there were two leaves, one being pretty beat up:( She has come a long way so far. That is the beauty of growing things though isn't it?! (This morning I found some brown looking things on the bottom of one leaf,pulled them off and there were little clear bubbles left over,puzzling)<-------Any ideas what that was all about??
I have planted and labeled everything in the garden. I have the sunburn to prove it--I know naughty me for forgetting the sunscreen:/ There are peas, butterhead lettuce,romaine, 2 kinds of squash, cayenne peppers,anaheim peppers, jalapeno peppers, radishes, carrots.
The cilantro and strawberries were bought for a $1 each at Lowes. If you have a gardening chain store like this near you I suggest you go and take a looksie at some of their roll around carts sometime. They almost always have something on clearance for around a $1 or $2.
|Believe it or now this one had one foot in the grave when I purchased it. I pinched off the brown,dead parts and it rejuvenated itself quite nicely;)|
|Another two weeks and a picket fence is going up around the garden. My boxer has taken a liking to eating these (who needs to watch for deer when one really needs to watch for a dog!) and runs through the garden:/:/|
|These will be oh so yummy in That's Shallotta recipe done by Rachael Ray:)|
