Haves and Have Nots

I have been working on my "green thumb" today. Tom had started looking for tomato seeds shortly after we arrived. It's true that homegrown (or Davis grown) are the best. A co-worker hooked us up and the sprouting started in 15 yogurt cups in mid-July. Now that the Typhoon season is about to the end, and our plants are really starting to take shape, it was time to take the next step.

Monday I ordered big pots and lots of soil; and it all was delivered straight to the flat on Friday. Today I got to assemble! I even used Tom's little saw to cut the bamboo sections for my trellises. Madison had to help me with a bit - apparently packing peanuts go in the have not category in Discovery Bay so we cut up sheet foam to add a little more volume to the soil. The good news- We have one lowly flower bud found!
