My tomato plants (just two) look unhappy. They haven't grown since I transplanted them. It's ok, I stink at growing tomatoes.

My potato plants, lettuce, mint, thyme, parsley, and rosemary are thriving.

It's probably too late now but one time when I went on vacation I had a bunch of transplants that I left behind. I made a greenhouse for them. I can't find the picture but I put all of my plants in a big plastic container that was about 6 inches high. I think I put a little water in the bottom, put some straws in to hold the plastic wrap and covered all of the plants with the plastic wrap without touching any plants. I left them inside the house and they were very healthy after a week.

Have a nice trip.

At least you are good at other things. I am the basil killer What's wrong with your tomatoes?

I'm awesome at basil! You just have to keep cutting it at the top to head off the flowers.

The tomatoes actually look exactly the same size as when I transplanted them from the chi-chi nursery about 3-4 weeks ago. They aren't growing in height. This is a dwarf plant called something-tiger which is only supposed to get about 12" - 24" tall.

I just looked at a photo I took on planting day, and to say it hasn't grown at all is definitely an overstatement. They have become more bushy, but are still very very short.

Veggie season has started for me. I've given up on starting plants inside, but I sowed spinach, peas, carrots and some garlic outside. I'm trying a new short season eggplant this year. Fingers crossed I get a TON of eggplant.

Nice.



I only planted some red onions, spinach and some lettuce. The nest two days are supposed to be pretty wicked. Cold, wind, hail and snow. I'm hoping the weathermen are wrong

I wonder if I can take a bunch of romaine and plant it outside and have it grow. You're supposed to be able to put the end in a container of water, root it, and then have a romaine plant growing in the house. Didn't work for me though.

But I started another one today. It's just sitting in a glass of water so that hopefully it can grow roots. We shall see!
