My mom says that these flowers almost always gets knocked down by wind and rain right after they bloom. I think she is right. This year it only took a few nights before most of them were closer to the ground than the sky. So glad I got this little collection of photos before that. It was rain in the air, and windy too, as I shot them. Guess I was right on time.

Yellow makes me happy.

Tomato Growing Project | Update

A little update on my tomato growing project:

Tiny Tomato Plants

I finally got them started! They are now repotted and outside. We’ll see if they’ll ever reach full growth (must remember to water them!) and I see another repotting in my future too – they need a lot more space as they grow larger, and around 10 liters of dirt each. My plan is to buy several cheep buckets and then make holes in the bottom of them. Makes it easier to relocate them or to move them inside when the night is cold.

I probably need to gift a few of them to friends, for this is a lot more than what I need. Even for MT’s ketchup making…¬†Since I planted so late I probably won’t have tomatoes until late summer – but looking forward to that (makes me want to water them)!

Hoping for a summer with lots of sunshine!!

Groving a garden | Tomato

This summer I really want to grow some tomatoes. I guess I have to start soon. I remember growing a few, many summers ago. Just having them in cheep plastic buckets that I had made holes in the bottom of. It was not all that pretty. But practical. And it was so fun looking for new growth and in the end eat delicious home grown tomatoes. So much better than anything store bought. For sure!

The only way to make sure I’ll do it is to start. So I have found the old buckets. Made plans to buy a few more. And now the seeds are going in the dirt one of these days. It’s crazy to think that last time I actually did plant my own tomato plants was several years before MT came into my life.

The photo¬†above is from MT’s very first taste of home made tomato soup (he was a month shy of 3 years old). He was not so sure about it at first, but over the years he’s fallen in love with the red delicious fruit (or is it a vegetable?!) with so many uses.

Maybe this is the year were MT learns how to make his very own ketchup?!

Grow tomatoes, grow!

Wish me good look with the garden growing (if only on a tiny small scale) – and if you have any favorite recipes or guides to how best to grow tomatoes –> please do share!
