As the weather (finally! What took so long???) gets warmer, I have been dreaming of the flowers or vegetables I will plant this year.
In other words, who will be my newest victims?
I manage to kill off most everything.
I chose 2 tomato plants:
This is one of them. Pay no mind to the hoardes of weeds nearby. I have a plan for that crap, I just need time to implement it.
I also bought a bell pepper plant. I've never done one of these before, so it's planted and we're just hoping for the best (or not).
We'll have to wait -n- see on that one.
I'm not into these plants to try to shield us from the freaking Rapture or whatnot, I'm just curious.
I had ONE tomato plant last season and it did OK. The tomatoes were not as big as I would have liked, but they were passable and edible.
Last year, I used spikes. This year, I plan on caging them. The pepper plant? No clue. That's this summer's experiment.
He may have to give his life for my knowledge.
I also bought a hanging potted plant that I just found interesting. No clue what it is, but it seems to be holding up to my cruel standards:
It's interesting, to say the least.
Side note: I found the tag that it came with. It says it's a "Hoya carnosa compacta" or just "Hoya" plant. Also known as a Hindu rope plant!
I also have a couple of pansies in the same area, but further towards the sunny spots.
I hope they make it, too!
It might help if I get out to water them on occasion. So far, it's been the Evil Twin and Sissy doing the watering after dinner.
Well, if the family will enjoy the bounty, it's only fair that the family shares the burden, right?? ;-)
