Tomorrow morning I’m dropping them both off to the vet. Moose is going in for a dental cleaning (he’s never had one) and it’s finally time to see if they can find Leon’s hidden orchids. I know I can’t find them! They must be in there somewhere, though. He’s still driving Damara & us batty in the middle of the night.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous for both of them. I just have to keep telling myself that I’m a responsible pet owner & cat mum, right?
Damara will probably cry for Leon all day until he comes home. It’s going to be fun all around!
I’m going to distract myself, and you, from my lame nervousness by telling you that I’m off for the next two days, and I already did what I was planning to do on my days off!
I re-potted the new courgette plant, Mr. Courgette (I just know this one is a guy, ok?), my capsicum (bell pepper), and eggplant sprouts.
The capsicum & eggplant sprouts look alarmingly similar. At first I thought the capsicums and tomato sprouts looked really similar, but I can see the difference now. I’m wondering if I mislabeled the ones marked eggplant? They were in the tray Leon got into originally! I guess only time will tell xD
Has anyone reading grown both plants from seed? Do they look similar? I will google when I’m done with this post to see if I can find pictures!
You may be wondering why my original popsicle stick labels are missing from this photo. It turns out they like to grow some kind of mold or fungus below soil level, which creeps me out, so I threw out some of them and replaced them with plastic markers. The plastic ones will last me forever, and hopefully won’t become suddenly fuzzy after I water things.
I found out a few nights ago that my smaller tomato sprouts and the capsicum & eggplants all close up at night when the light goes out! I had no idea they did that.
My thyme sprouts turned green today! Yesterday they looked like little white dots, but now you can see they’re actually wee sprouts popping up everywhere.
Ben’s Dad and I call each other every few days to update one another our garden progress. It’s definitely been really cool to have something we can both babble on about for ages. :)
My larger cucumber plant put out its first true leaf. It was very sudden — I kept watching it, wondering when it would happen and then one morning it was just there!
Things seem are coming along nicely. I’m going to have to rethink my garden plan a bit…it’s looking empty until things are big enough to put outside without my being afraid of more plantnapping taking place, lol.
Now it’s time for me to distract myself with catching up on blogs and replying to the awesome comments here! I feel like I need some worry dolls or something!
What do you like to do to distract yourself from worrying? Any secrets you want to share?
