When we found out we were moving to Colorado my only request was that I could plant a tomato plant. Seriously, that was it. And when we found out that our apartment had a patio I felt like all my wishes were coming true. (Besides the wish that I could have a real house with a real backyard, and the wish to be skinny, that's always a good wish).
Then when we got there Brandon asked what I wanted to do first and obviously I said that I just wanted to plant a tomato. I think he thought I was kidding the entire time, which I am not sure why, because when you make it to a new and exciting city isn't the first thing you want to do is also plant a tomato plant? Sheesh.
So off to Home Depot we went. And oh my goodness I had no idea how difficult it was to choose a tomato plant! Have you ever been there to choose a single tomato plant? There's like at least 22 different variation with the most awesome names ever. Seriously, just for a good laugh head over to your local Home Depot and check out those tomato plants. You'll have a grand time. Now, I decided to be practical since we are only going to be in this mile-high city for about two months so I chose a patio tomato plant (which might have been a mistake) and the early girl, which promises fruit within 50 days. Oh and a sweet basil plant, just because it seemed like a really good idea.
I pretty much love my plants. I check on them all of the time and just think it's amazing how much they are growing. (I feel a little silly because I'm pretty sure I've read that same line in a blog that is describing children and I'm using it to refer to my plants..hmm).
