Hi everyone! Remember on March 1, I posted about my experiment to grow tomatoes from tomato slices? Well, I’m excited to report that – it works!
I planted the slices just like the video directed and then I went on vacation to the Grand Canyon. I left my pots with plastic covers over them to keep the soil moist and warm. When I came home and peeked under the plastic, there were a few seedlings popping up! Now there are bunches. When they grow a bit, I’ll have to thin them to just three plants in each pot. I’m keeping my hooves crossed that I keep doing things right! Has anyone else tried this yet? Let me know, please!
Scout, my young American Brittany and walking companion, had better things to do today, so I walked the property alone. So sad, but look what I found! Half of a worn out, rusty horseshoe. Pretty cool. The horses were interested in what I was looking at and came over to inspect. They’re glad they don’t have to wear shoes.
Hi everyone. Not every llama likes tomatoes, but I do! The above video from The Wannabe Homesteader site shows a simple way to start tomato plants from a sliced up tomato. I thought this would be a wonderful thing for children to try at home, with a parent’s help to slice the tomato!
So with the help of Nancy, I’m trying this and will update everyone on my success. If you try it too, please pass along your pictures.
As a writer, I look for advice and help to further my writing efforts. This post in the Northern Colorado Writers, The Writing Bug blog resonated with me this morning. My take-away message: Keep writing. Work through your fears. Do your homework. Have confidence (Do I hear Maria from The Sound of Music, on her way to the von Trapp ?). Keep writing (yes, I meant to repeat that!).
