House Pets

Look how well our vegetables are doing!
We are growing five pepper plants and three tomatoes. And they look like they are actually going to make it! *crosses fingers and throws salt over left shoulder* I believe that Chris hopes we will be so successful we have to make hot sauce.
Here are the tomatoes that have caused me quite a bit of stress. The two on the right were recommended for patio growth and are doing quite nicely after an initial scare which turned out to be a nitrogen deficiency. Thank you Dr. Google. But the little guy on the left has caused the most trouble. For starters I think he needs more sun, not much I can do about that. Also, I didn't realize until after I brought him home that he is actually two plants; so he is constantly competing with himself for nutrients and pot space. Then his leaves started to turn yellow and fall off! One emotional break down and a trip to the hardware store for special plant food later, he has started to make a comeback. Can you tell I need to get a life? :) (Yes Michael, I cried over a plant.)
And look! He may be the most stunt/starved/deprived plant we have, but he's doing his job! I kid you not, I called Chris at work about those little guys.:)

Oh yes, I really need to get a life.


  1. Haha, wow, that's sad... :) I like your waterers! :) haha.

  2. Oh boy. This does not bode well for me. All your life if you got hormonal you cried, but for me if I feel hormonal I get mad... *reconsiders plans to ever be pregnant*

    Can you see it now? "And that stupid plant wouldn't grow to I punt kicked it off the balcony and stopped the flower pot into oblivion." ;)

  3. I love them! I've totally got a black thumb so plants will be minimal for me! And I'm definitely getting those watering globe things when/if I do try to grow plants!!
