Hey y’all! If you are one of many new followers, the Daily Tea is our OPEN forum. I talk about my gardening issues a lot or ramble on about my cute dog Banjo. But others have more serious issues going on they want to vent about. It’s pretty much open season. I do ask that you don’t spoil any TV shows! In this day and age we watch things on our own schedules and saying things like OMG! I can’t believe (insert name here) on (insert show here!) is not something people expect to see in these posts.
Things are heating up in the ATL. It was almost 90 today and the humidity is rising. I bought a lantana plant (see above for an example) that I think I am going to plant in the front yard in front of the ugly backyard fence.
I am having a lot of trouble with my tomatoes next year. I have two giant pots of tomatoes, one cheat plant (purchased when it was already ready to bear fruit) and one yellow pear tomato plant. Both have had the exact same attention. They cheat plant is healthy as a horse, the yellow pear is a dying mess. I have the same issue with by tomatoes in the side garden. A couple are doing fine, and those right next door have yellow leaves and the early girl is dying altogether. Something was eating my peppers, but they seem to be recovering. Especially the tabasco one. Perhaps now that it is maturing the leaves have a bit of heat to now.
I manage to wear myself out at the Kroger but have now cooled down and caught a second wind. It’s time for the dreaded putting everything away part grocery shopping, watering the garden. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow, but my plants don’t look like they can wait that long. And Banjo is apparently starving to death. It must burn a lot of calories to shed ten pounds of hair an hour.
So what’s going on in your neck of the woods ?
