I think I mentioned that I bit the bullet this year and I am once again trying to grow tomatoes (after a couple years of tomato trauma). I bought some very happy tomato plants from my gardening super star neighbor. And they have been sitting on my porch  growing like gangbusters!

Warm days + excessive rain = happy tomatoes and lavender.

This year I just decided underwatering, not over watering had been my issue. So I cast caution to the winds, did not obsessively cruise the internet to find out how much I was supposed to water, and decided to treat them both to a pan full of water daily. I also fertilized them!  I've never fertilized a plant in my life.

Anyhow, despite the rampant growth, I was seeing no tomatoes. Until today!!!!

Ain't she a beauty!
 In other, it's about time news, after about 5 years of waiting for my poor sad hydrangea to decide it's a plant that wants to live...

Almost a real plant!
