Tumbling Tom vs Whippersnapper

By: aquak9, 2:34 PM GMT on March 29, 2015

The other blog was so odd- it began with me pulling Sir Buenodick out of the ground, and ended with me putting KizzieMae into the ground.

A little too soon for a blog about Kizzie; she is resting peacefully.

But- Two new tomatoes have caught me eye, and quite a few people got to share these seeds. They are the TumblingTom and the Whippersnapper tomato from Bountiful Gardens; oh but there's no link because it's not a seed they offer anymore. Dag...

And the Acadamy Award goes to Sir Buenodick!

We can remember his life well. Even though he blended in with all the others, Sir Buenodick’s beginnings were well documented.

He, like his famous predecessors, had humble beginnings.

His family lived to the north of the Pac Choy family.

During his childhood, he saw many changes in the world around him- yet he continued to persevere.

Hi Folks.

Sometimes things thrive when they are transplanted- taken from one environment, and placed in another. Sometimes, things don't thrive. The new environment might be better, or it might be worse- or the original environment might've created such a doomed situation, that no amount of change could've saved the situation. You just never know, until time passes.

You reap what you sow.

I want to thank all of my posters and lurker...

Or maybe I should've titled it, "Under the GROWLight".

Tomorrow is March 1st, and normally I would have two- to three-inch tall plants outside in the sun. What Sun? The first round died- they were leggy, I tried to transplant them, they FOAD'd.

(five extra-credit points for those who know what FOAD is; Spathy you can't tell)

I replanted every seed I had. But, no sun! and no sun in the forecast! So I did what I've NEVER done before- ...

Down But Not Defeated

2-23-15: Yeah I just about killed everything. So I reseeded- but we haven't had a good four hours of solid sunshine in nearly a week. Last resort? I bought a grow light system from Amazon.

It arrived exactly twenty-three hours after I ordered it.

I kid you not.

Yeah I figured that'd get a few people to click on my blog, hahaha

I've tried a new, tall, deep-red sunflower called Red Moon. These are the long-legged re...
