June is here, the sun is shining (finally!) and the tomatoes are in bloom! In fact they’re blooming all over the place, giving me my first real hope that I might actually see some fruit someday. They’re also getting a lot of waterings, particularly the ones in the second bedroom, because it seems like every time I turn my back for about five minutes they’re dry again. I’m thinking about checking the bottoms of the pots for bailing pumps.
On a sadder note, I have had to give up and pull out two of the outside plants, which finally succumbed to the white mold. I was trying to keep from having to do it, cutting off any leaves that looked infected, but on Saturday I went out and looked and realized that I had trimmed them down to just stalks with a couple of leaves on top, and those were turning white too. So, for the good of the others, I put them out of their misery, and I’m hoping it wasn’t in vain.
