But it is exciting! When my first little tomato showed up, I ran around the back yard a few times and then did a happy dance. Miles looked at me like I was crazy. Then he started dancing too. It really was as cute as it sounds.
And then when JJ got home, I didn’t even give him a chance to settle in. I dragged him outside and was all, “LOOK! ITS A TOMATO!” He was happy for me, but he really did look at me like I was crazy.
And my poor leaning tomato plants. Next year I’m going to plant them in the 5 gallon buckets and rig up a better support system.
I call this box the “hot mess box”. I’m pretty sure I way overplanted this one – jalapeno, bell pepper, cilantro, sugar snap peas and cucumbers. And the cucumbers have choked out the peas. And I’m not sure why the leaves are all yellow like – over water? Under water?
I do like these boxes. Its nice to not have to water them every day. And reassuring to know that the roots are getting enough water even if its 95+ outside. But, man, I’m stressing out about the tomatoes! And the hot mess box! And I’m impatient! I want a tomato!
And you probably want me to cease work on the exclamation points!!!!
