It’s my birthday, and I’m 22!
I also missed my second (!) blogiversary a week ago. Two years is a long time! Here’s a stat – I’ve got 541 posts, not including this one. Not a bad rate, overall.
Unfortunately I haven’t any knitting to show you today (I’m busy reknitting a sleeve…oy) so it’s going to have to be some photos of my container veggie garden!
It hasn’t been going super-duper well, but it’s been pretty darn good. Check out this eggplant, of which I’m immensely proud:
The photo was taken a few days ago – today I picked it, and ate it sauteed alongside some cherry tomatoes, basil and parmesan. Mmmm, fresh.
Unfortunately, I’ve been losing a couple of tomatoes…
Blossom end rot and some unknown critter. I’ve already taken some steps to help with the rot – organic fertilizer and eggshells. I really hope the next ones are okay! Luckily I’ve got other plants in other pots.
These peppers are interesting – they’re growing in a tri-cornered shape! Cool. My burgundy beans are also coming along, and I should have some to pick in just a few days.
Keep cool! And if you’re in the neighbourhood, I’m having birthday drinks at Utopia on College on Friday night and you’re invited! email me if you want more deets.
Oy- am I the first one to congratulate? So then:
And happy blogiversary – thanks for another year of almost daily knitting fun!
Happy birthday and Blogiversary!

Maybe I’m just lacking any sort of greenthumb, but what do the eggshells do? Do you crumble them up in the soil?
Happy birthday! Have an awesome day!!!
Happy Birthday! And belated second blogiversary. :) Many happy returns on both.
Happy B-day and Blogiversary! Have fun!
Happy, happy birthday!
Happy Birthday! I’m growing tomatoes this summer for the first time. The cherry tomatoes are a success, but the normal-sized ones aren’t doing so well, and not being a seasoned grower, I’m not sure why. I’ll try the eggshells and fertilizer. Maybe that will do the trick.
Happy birthday, Laura! Have a great one!
Happy Birthday and Blogiversary!!!
