One of my items to do before turning 30 was to grow my own tomatoes. I took the first steps toward that by buying tomato plants. I bought two, a “patio tomato” plant and a yellow pear tomato plant. I’m quite pleased with this and really hope I can keep them alive and actually producing fruit.
I also purchased new dwarf citrus tress, a meyer lemon one and a blood orange. I bought two dwarf citrus last year and I killed them. This time I am dedicated to keeping them alive. They will become my surrogate children!
And bethany actually posted about the buds in her yard and that reminded me to take a moment to get out into the “real world” (you know, the one that isn’t full of work-related demands and is full of sunshine, plants and wind) and snap a photo of the blossoms on my plum tree. Those flowers make me so happy, maybe a little silly but it’s a cheaper form of therapy than a psychologist.
- I need to buy some herbs. I want to grow my own herbs to use in cooking.
- If I actually have success with the lemons, I may need to try this recipe. (Using Retro Bakery‘s pie crust recipe, of course!)
