Back home to my tomatoes, which appear to have thrived in my absence, thanks to Cameron’s help with the watering. I returned with a renewed vigor for my gardening, and some new information, thanks to Lisa, apartment-gardening maven with the blog
* to prove it. From her I learned useful things like “you need to keep your tomatoes off the ground or they’ll get leaf rot” and “if you see mold on any of your plants you had better get rid of it” and “get that mint (not pictured) out of your herb pot or else it will take over and choke everything else out” and other things that someone who actually knows something about gardening knows.
So I have been employing her suggestions, and I think my tomatoes should be much healthier for it and give me lots of fruit all through the summer. And, if not, maybe she will mail me some of her extras.
Confused Tomato (not pictured) remains deeply confused.
*My favorite bits so far: “Roquette Man” and the view from the strawberries.**
**Also, the somehow-familiar footnoting.
