I don't want to gloat too much- I apologize to those who are knee deep in snow. But wintertime is here, and look who strolled in a little late.
That's right. Cute litte cheery cherry tomatoes. A couple of round happyfaces. I will nurture them and baby them and talk and sing to them until they plump up with rosy cheeks and then I will devour them like Saturn devouring his children.. yuuum.. crunchy....
Anyhow, remember how I told you my cloning plant grew a flowering spike? I really don't know why it does this when it is already so prolific in progeny. Let me show you the babies the clones gave off:
These are only about 10% of the baby clones I kept. There were so, so many of them. Let me know if you want me to send you one. I think they're really ready to go now.
Well, back to the flowering spike- This is so beautiful, I wish i could capture the beautiful red and pink tones through a lens. Unfortunately, all I have is this picture.
I will try to capture as many pictures as I can through this process. Hopefully something spectacular and climactic happens.
P.S. I was wondering if anybody has happy citrus growing right now. This would be the magic hour for them. I would love to see pictures. Plus, to all my fellow Southern California gardeners, those citrus must be über sweet since we've had so much rain!
Please send pictures of orange blossoms. They are my most favored aromatic flowers, oh swoooooooooon!
P.P.S. This is what I will look like when I devour my leetle cheery cherries:
