I wish I hadn't deleted the pictures of what happened next! I know I took them, but I can't find where I posted them anywhere :( Basically, the window in my kitchen over the sink is a breeding ground for seeds. They grow at about 20x the rate they grow in other places. Seriously!
Pretty soon it was time to move the plants from the "growing container", as I'm now calling it, into pots. Why did I not plant them in the ground? I don't know. I guess because I never really expected anything to grow to begin with!
(roma tomatoes, cilantro, cayenne peppers)
I now have more cilantro than I know what to do with. My roma tomato plants are almost as tall as I am, and there are flowers all over my pepper plant. BRING ON THE SALSA!
I think I also told you all about my Topsy Turvy tomato plant growing apparatus?
What a success that has been! We've already enjoyed THREE tomatoes from that plant:
(yes, i have a monster cucumber plant growing out of a pot. don't you laugh at me! i have approximately 11 cucumbers growing on it. see. not so crazy after all)
