This morning I went for my first beta. Someone will get around to calling me with the result several hours from now.
I came home from the lab and took my dogs for a walk. Here is a photo of us I took with my cell phone (I was intrigued with the shadow distortion):
As I wait for my beta, I thought I'd share with you the current state of my garden. I think you can click on any of the photos to make them larger.
The single tomato is growing by leaps and bounds.
And more new tiny tomatoes have finally appeared (for a while I thought I'd end up with just the one after all this work!). See how I'm always peeking up inside to see what is going on in there?
There have been some casualties. Some feasting and mysteriously disappearing parts (in the second photo, notice the arms with nothing attached to them!).
Some yellowing and unexplained breakage.
But overall I'm pleased with the progress.
My bell peppers are deliriously happy. Peppers popping out everywhere.
The cantaloupe has been my biggest challenge. Managing the vines. How much water to give. Not stepping on them. Waiting for fruit. The other day - finally - I noticed that some of the flowers have swollen little bellies beneath them. Fruit? I think so! They are barely bigger than a green pea, but hey, we all have to start somewhere!
My cilantro bit the dust. I'm wondering if I can lop off the top mess and replant in the ground for better results. The flowers took over and then the leaves died off.
I haven't harvested a single piece of fruit yet, and already I'm thinking and planning for what I want to plant next year! I think I've become a garden addict!
