it's finally happened
congratulate me, i have a tomato on one of my plants. finally. only one though. i have more flowers and the tomato is about as big as my thumb nail. it's growing in a pot. the chili plant is doing nothing at all. the cucumbers are not doing much either. the lemongrass is growing beautifully. the thyme ditto. i have a small japanese bamboo, at least that's what i call it. it's looking very sick atm. i've killed two trees, one of which, i think, was a jacaranda, the other, i've no idea what it was but if pressed i'd say some kind of native. i just planted some blue irises and something that may be agapanthus but we'll have to wait and see. speaking of agapanthus, i don't have one flower. not one. the neighbourhood is all abloom with them but out of my three, small pathetic looking plants i don't have one. remember last year when i got a flower. happy days. i've decided to buy some more because this lot are obviously duds.
