Breaking News!

My tomato pollination worked! I have fruit!















There are more blooms opening, too...

...so I get to use the cosmetic brush I bought for "official" pollinating. Now we'll see if the fruit will mature in sheet-filtered southern exposure.


My air plant is doing exciting things as well-it has blooms!


Very cute! They kinda remind me of crocuses.

Even the african violet is beginning to bloom...

 
Spring has sprung! (In my apartment, anyhow :)

I haven't gotten to the point of growing tomatoes indoor during the winter, but I feel like one day I'll become that crazy gardener who needs to do it. Nice job with the pollination.

Garden Broad said...

Lol, I sure am that crazy gardener :) This tomato was actually a volunteer that came up in a pot of Christmas cactus back in the summer of 2011. The cactus died but the tomato lingered on, and really stepped up once I began to fertilize (funny how that works.)

Sweet! Glad you're still keeping up with your plants even though you live in the "big city" now. :)
