I grew something!


I was feeling a little down about myself the other day when my grandma told me that my tomato plant probably should have little tomatoes on it by now. My plant is huge but there were no little tomatoes. I love the thought of gardening but I’m really not that great at keeping plants alive. I killed ivy once. An ivy…no one can kill ivy. However, as we were coming home the other night, I saw four little, green tomatoes on my struggling plant! I’ve never grown anything before. Well, I take that back. I’ve grown flowering plants and I happen to grow children for a living—and the second one, by the way, is currently sucking the life right out of me:). But, in any case, today is big day because I’ve finally found that I can grow something edible...a vegetable…fruit…whatever it is!

I know how you feel! I killed a Jade plant...those are almost as hard to kill as ivy (but I did it)! I can't wait for Nick and I to have a garden! He is totally in to it and actually takes great care of plants (thank goodness one of us does)! Hope you had a great weekend!
ps. Nick and I just found out that we are soon going to have another niece or nephew! I love being an aunt (can't wait to be a mom)!

Good job Amy! I've been killing plants lately.
I thought I'd try to train them to go w/o water.
