My first tomato! I’m trying to be patient. This is my first cherry tomato from last season. I was so excited when they started turning that lovely deep red. I hear about folks plucking tomatoes off of their own plants already, and I am envious. Of course, mine won’t be ready for about 2 more months. Sigh… But, the plants have taken nicely to their containers, it seems. The plants are healthy and growing. I’ve got some peppers I’m trying this year too. I am limited by space, meaning I still need to be able to walk a few steps on the balcony to water and play with my babies. It’s a bit, um, narrow out there right now. 🙂 My basil this year is already so much more plentiful that last year… cuz, well, I started with a bigger plant this year. But she is looking just marvelous and I have already gotten so many fresh leaves off of her. Last year’s darling was a bit scrawny, but still OK overall, in my book.
I’d grow more indoors if a) there was more direct sun available; b) there was some sill available by the windows; and c) there was no cat. The cat really is the stickler. She has a great fondness for chives, and basically anything green. But I really can’t see getting rid of her for just a few more plants. Most days, anyway… 😉
