And Then I’ll Stop About the Plants, Already (Maybe)

Posted on

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!

  1. Does it require a lot of sun? Or will I have to take it on walks from my dimly lit office to the sunny reception area?

  2. Well, it’s hard to say. I’ve been setting it up in the windowsill periodically to get a hint of natural light (even though it’s still pretty shady), and that may or may not be the reason it’s still here. But hey! I bet it’ll fit in the Baby Bjorn — you could just wear it out with you to lunch or something. That wouldn’t be weird!

  3. Yay for you, Meg! I was thinking about you the other day as I was checking out my tomato plants 🙂
