Two of my blogger friends have posted beautiful pictures of their respective tomato plants this week. I have nothing to show.
In fact, I gave up on the plants.
A few days ago, I sent out a desperate e-mail for help to a co-worker. "Would you like to have my plants?" I asked him. A few hours later, he was at my house ready to take the pots of non-descript gray-green stuff off my hands. I gave him the almost dead ones from the front porch, but I also gave him the four prosperous looking ones from my kitchen window (after sticking in a painter's stick and tying the plants together with a Christmas ribbon).
Perhaps my friend will have better luck. He has been very successful at growing pumpkins in the past, so I put my faith in his "green hands."
