Holy Pea Pods!!!

Wow, I planted some English Peas about 2 weeks ago, and BAM, they are huge! OK, maybe not huge but they have grown about three inches and, AND they already are forming pea pods!! The peas are on the right, White Polar Morning Glory on the left. I also planted some along the fence line in very crappy soil with gravel and they are sprouting there as well. The tomatoes I planted have NOT died! In fact they appear to be healthy and there is one tiny tomato that is growing. In the last blog I forgot to tell you, they are Roma tomatoes, I planted them so that the first inch of plant was down in the soil. They seem to like that, oh and I sing to them (thanks Brian for the suggestion). My tulips are on their way to actual flowers...I know! I bought them in an airport in Amsterdam last September and they have been in their travel container ever since. I planted them in February in their own pot and they are in partial shade. Who knew that they would be so awesome! But what's not Cilantro, looks very sad and not sprouting, I may have over watered. I tend to do that when I'm bored. I think I'm going to put it outside in the sun for a bit and see if it dries the soil out a little. More later on the plant situation, thanks for reading!
My favorite flowers are the ones I get from my boyfriend, thanks baby!!

The garden

Today I will trying to plant some tomatoes. Now, I have tried before without much success. So this time, I'm trying some baby plants that seem to be pretty healthy that I found at Mission Nursery. I will be adding bamboo rods in a triangle above them for stability...if they grow that big, ha ha! Please feel free to give suggestions. Here is where I would post a picture of the progress, however I don't really know how to do that yet! Oh wait, let's see if this works...
