Hello chemistry

I'm going to blame part of yesterdays freakout on low blood sugar. Some still belongs to enraging people, and some to me, but the blood sugar thing didn't help AT ALL. It became abundantly clear that I needed to eat when I got home and just about collapsed on the floor. I ate breakfast AND lunch yesterday, so I have no idea what was going on there. But getting home and immediately stuffing my face with what felt like the entire pantry certainly improved my mood. Yet another thing to love my husband for - he catches me when I'm like this and feeds me. I never seem to recognize the symptoms early enough.

Actual fruit


It looks like the crazy tomato plants that bloomed in the middle of August are going to try to produce fruit. There are tiny green globes hanging from the branches of many of the plants, the rest are in full flower. I have no idea whether the tomatoes will actually mature but I will try my darndest to get them ripe. I was out yesterday taking pictures in amazement and bending the secondary branches. I’ve read that this technique will concentrate the plants energy into the remaining limbs, hopefully with an emphasis on the fruit.

There’s another tiny plant that’s producing flowers like crazy. I have no idea what it is. It’s most likely that it’s either a jalapeno or a tomatillo, but which it really is I couldn’t tell you. The flowers are really interesting looking, but I definitely need a better way to track starts from the egg carton to the 2″ pots. That’s where I lost track of which was what and whether or not certain seeds had started.
