I definitely do not have a green thumb. At all. As I've mentioned before I have 3 live plants in my house and its all I can do to keep those alive (actually, the one I replace every 6 months is in need of replacing now). But, BUT, BUT ... when I do have gardening successes you can bet that I'm going to show them off!
So, this spring when I was at Pike's picking out stuff for my front and back planters, I also picked up a couple of tomato plants just for fun. I came home, put everything in my planters, and then planted both tomato plants in 12 inch pots. They sat like this for a good few weeks until Mom finally had the grace to tell me that I really needed whiskey barrels. But, stunted growth be damned, they are flourishing right now!! We water every day and Wyatt tries to pull each and every "big ah-ma-mo" off the vine.
Look at these puppies!!! They're huge! Even Ben says he'll eat our home-grown tomatoes once they ripen.
Here he is along with a couple friends a few days later.
Last night I was out watering and discovered that several of those sunflowers have multiple heads. This is so much fun!!! I don't think you can really see well in this picture, but there is another little head about to bloom near that leaf. Its such a happy little flower, isn't it?
I'll tend to that next year, I suppose. Anyone want to draw up a plan for me though??
