I have a small garden on my living room deck, and most years, I just grow stuff for Tabs to eat (catnip, echinacea, cat grass and zinnia flowers), but this summer I decided to add some veggies and fruit (tomatoes are technically a fruit… I really enjoyed upper division botany.).
The cherry tomato plant is taking off! There must be 50 tiny tomatoes on it as we speak.
Yum! I think I’ll make a lemon fusilli and tomato pasta salad.
I also planted an early girl tomato plant, and it’s coming along, too. Slowly but surely. Only one lonely ripe tomato so far… Hurry up, early girl!
The snap peas and spinach are also well on their way…
Last, but not least, basil! There’s one healthy plant on my deck and one in my kitchen that I got from Trader Joe’s. I see pesto in my future.
How about you? Do you do much gardening? Do you have any suggestions for getting rid of whiteflies? They’re going to town on Tabs’ catnip!
