Tomatoes


I've got flowers! My sweet olives are both flowering. My hungarian paste are doing pretty well, but my amish paste are looking sick. They are very droopy, they must take a lot more water than the others.

Logan was helping me water the deck garden today and asked me where all the plants we were watering came from. I told him they came from the seeds we planted a few months ago. He was so excited to realize they had grown this much. He was almost crying from his excitement! He touched each plant and told them how great they looked. That boy does love plants.

I noticed that my amish paste were like that too. They didnt look nearly as full and solid as the other variety I am growing. They did seem to need more water.

That's so sweet how excited Logan was...maybe he'll grow up to be a botanist.

Sweet boy - he'll go far!

I didn't get any paste in the ground this year but I've had trouble with them in the past.

That's so exciting, Christy!
Logan is like a proud parent watching his babies grow up. Beautiful!
And you know he'll be extra proud when those 'maters are fully grown and he can show them off and taste their yumminess and know that he had a huge part in helping them grow.

Hooray, Logan!

your tomato plant looks really great. I just planted mine on Friday (we had frost warnings all weeek long. It is about 6 - 8 inches tall. I sure hope it does as well as the one last year. Logan must get his love of plants from his great-great grandma. My grandmother had a way with plants that defied all knowledge. It was as though she knew what they were thinking and needed. She could nurse any sick plant back to health. She always talked to all her plants; she really believed that they could hear her. Way to go, Logan!!

Thanks for all the compliments. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who has struggled with the Amish Paste.
