We have been having a very quiet week around here. Mom went to a book signing in Milwaukee about a gentleman named Christopher Moore that made her very happy. She went with a few of her friends from work, so I couldn’t go with. However, she brought Caleb and he told me that it was kind of fun, although it was a long car ride both ways, they spent a lot of time waiting, and he didn’t get to get out of Mom’s purse at all. Mom has some pictures on her facebook page if you would like to see.
We are still gardening around here. Things haven’t changed much, but we thought we would share the progress. Our morning glory seedlings have not been doing too well. Only about half even germinated at all. The tomato plants are doing extremely well though. So well that we are soon going to have to pick some of them out of the pots! Mom says that we have to pick the strongest ones to keep so they get the most nutrients and water! I think it’s so sad that we have to pick some of the seedlings, but I understand why.
For some unknown reason, this seedling, a cup and saucer vine, is doing the best. This picture was taken a few days ago. Now it even has some tendrils. It is the only one in the pot, so it will get to live—and it might even get put into a bigger pot sooner rather the later. We’re pretty excited about the seedlings that are growing! Our weather is unseasonably warm, so I’m getting a bit anxious about buying flowers and putting things outside. Mom does have to remind me that we’ve got at least a month before we get to even consider putting things outside! Sigh! Moms are so rational!
