I’m starting to think I’m not supposed to have tomatoes this year. My first shot at seeds and nothing sprouted. Attempt number two and after I got them planted and as I was putting them under the grow lights they fell out of my hand and spilled everywhere. Third time replanting them and they did fine for a few days, until this morning.
Lesson learned. Put a lock on the grow room.
Also, never underestimate the sneakiness of kit #2. He is a minja.
After this incident I think I’m giving up on tomatoes this year. I texted Mister Fox and let him know we needed a lock for our door ASAP. When he got home from work he wanted me to check out what he had got. I opened the trunk and guess what I found. Not a lock. But you should have seen the smile on my face and the tears in my eyes. This man gets me. And he knows at least one of the ways to my heart.
Two blueberry bushes, five bags of topsoil and a bag of mulch.
Starting plants from seed can be very rewarding. It can also be very frustrating. After the tomato seed starting disasters and my feelings of failure, that trunk full of gardening goodness was just what I needed.
We may not be snacking on fox cherry or tigerella tomatoes this year, but at least we’ll have blueberries!
