Having had major failure with tomato seeds sent by my Canadian friend
(first time it has happened), I had to crawl to a nursery and buy a
"Celebrity" tomato plant. Not sure if I ever grew them before.
But the main job last evening was transplanting the healthy, beautiful
little tomatoes and cucumbers that sprouted in two large planters
where I had installed Blue Hibiscus in a mix of yard earth, my
compost, and Perlite.
Did it at twilight and watered them in tenderly so the little darlings
could rest overnight. On morning inspection, they all looked great.
On mid-afternoon inspectiion, after hours of hot sun, they're still
hanging in there. Yay!
Also transplanted a whole bunch of snap pea vines that had
sprung up where the original snap peas were earlier this year.
They planted themselves in the wrong places. I know it's the wrong
season for them, but they were so enterprising that I decided to give
them a chance.. I've never had huge luck replanting vines, so whatever
