It has been a tough week for the tomatoes. The previous two days have been 100 degrees. Here is a little extra information: container plants - vegetables - need watered every day. I didn't water the previous evening - got a little busy with the parents. So after missing some water and then hot temperatures... they looked pretty sad Thursday night.
Here it is the next morning. I watered it in the evening, the morning, and the evening again. I also moved the plants to the other side of the patio with more shade. Unfortunately, it is by the air conditioning unit; its' not so pretty on that side. Although it looked even better after the 2nd day of triple digits.
|on the mend|
So despite the tomatoes trauma, they are still pretty big. The herbs are looking pretty good - the basil hasn't grown up much, but the parsley and oregano has taken off!
oh- one more thing! this morning on Pinterest I saw a container with carrots - it looked pretty easy to grow them and I had some extra soil. So when I found myself wandering past the pots - actually after spotting the pots from the other side of the store - I shortly found a pot and pack of carrot seeds in my cart. I'd take a picture, but now it just looks like a pot of dirt. ;-)
