Baby tomatoes that is.
I've been a little busy lately and wanted to share what's been keeping me.
Let's see, where should I start?
For the past few years I've been talking about wanting to grow some tomatoes. Well, I finally did it and it's so much fun. I bought two, one is a popper tomato the other is a grape tomato. Yeah, I know they are very similar but one already had a few green baby tomatoes on it so I kinda cheated getting started on that one but the other didn't have any. I have to say that those plants are the fastest growing plants that I know of. I think they grew four inches every day. I'm happy to report they are still alive and I now have baby RED tomatoes. So excited!
Here it is...
In the beginning...
As you can see they are about a foot or so tall.
I must confess hubby helped me plant them, but I'm taking care of them. I guess it's a joint venture.
We needed a couple of drain holes so out came the drill.
Next rocks. He said they needed them, so OK. Something to do with draining. Remember I'm new at this.
The old staple, Miracle Gro. I was told that was probably the best to use.
Now the planting.
Planted and ready for nurturing.
And Now.....fast forward a about 3 weeks...
One is about four feet tall and the other is about three feet tall.
I decided to do container gardening and keep them on our pool deck to help reduce the bug issue and I think I made the right decision.
Just look at them! Ahh you can see my itsy bitsy red tomatoes.
I now have two more starter tomato plants that will have larger tomatoes and two green pepper plants. I'll share those later when their babies arrive, me being the proud mama that I am.
Part 2 of I've been up to something will continue tomorrow.
Have a great day.
