Good Morning, Peeps! I woke up at 5:00 and stayed up. It takes a while for the sun to come up when you're waiting ...
The Morning Glories doing what they do best.
They have completely taken over the front porch. Some vines are dying and some are still sending out those nasty tendrils that twist though everything. Of course, they are full of bees. Bees are good, but not my favorite companions when I try to spend time on the porch. It all started years ago with one stray vine. Now, it is more like alien invaders.
Tomato slice babies this morning.
It has been 2 1/2 weeks since I planted that ripe tomato slice. IF I ever decide to try to plant tomatoes again, I will buy a couple vine-ripe tomatoes from the store and slice it up directly into the garden. No messing with seeds, or transplanting little plants and hoping I don't kill them, or worrying if the wind is too strong. The tomato was a nice fat one, so I know what the puppies will look like and how they will taste - no having to guess which ones are which. I loved the experiment, too bad it is so late in the season, nights are already getting cooler. I can hardly believe there are so many little plants! I wish I had thought to try this with a pepper plant - bell peppers make pretty house plants in the winter when a person is craving green.
