Things have been really busy around here. We've re-furnished parts of our house, so that leads to late nights trying to figure out what screw goes where, and how to get everything in its 'place'. Plus, we have a standing baby, yes, at under 9 months old she figured out how to pull herself up to standing, and even 'walk' along pieces of furniture. This also leads to a lot of craziness. Where I could plop her down for a few minutes before, she is now crawling over to appropriate pieces of furniture and standing/walking. I can only imagine how crazy it will all be when she really walks.
Plus, I've had some rather large projects come my way professionally, and since the key to this whole adventure is having a work from home income, I throw myself into those when they come my way with gusto.
So, after thinking about options for propping up my plants, I ended up doing, well, nothing. And I am kind of embarrassed to admit it. After I planted 6 cherry tomato plants and another 6 heirloom tomato plants, spent all this time caring for them, I kind of let the ball drop. The good news, is that they appear to be thriving anyways. Parts of the plants are lying down, but they seem to be still making tomatoes. Which is great, but it makes me a little sad, because we are leaving, on a rather long trip, right when I think the tomatoes will be ripe. Sigh.
I think next year we might go on vacation in September or October. Missing my tomatoes makes me sad. Even if I can have all I can eat at my parents place...
