Okay, but this was just so cool that I had to share:
It’s a “sculptural lemon scented geranium”, and I love it! Not only does it smell terrific, but it looks like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. Now, I don’t have the best luck with houseplants, so fingers crossed, but I already feel like I NEED one for the kitchen, too. Ooh, I can just picture it!
In other green news, I harvested more than half a dozen sugary tomatoes over the weekend, and more are on the way. The sugary variety looks like a cross between a cherry- and a grape-tomato, and is delicious — totally lives up to the name. Unfortunately, one of the stalks broke on Saturday (boo!), but I applied a tourniquet (yes, really) and it seems to be holding up. Fingers crossed there, too. The cucumber vine is going insane, but I can’t tell if any of the fruit is actually going to make it. It’s a very intense time around here!
