November 28, 2011 journal
I thought Ava would really enjoy watching the wonder of a flower opening, so I set up a time lapse camera to , hopefully, record the opening of our Pinwheel Zinnia blossom.
As a matter of fact, I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out myself. I guess I am still a kid at heart, but aren't we all?
I am already planning my next tent grows, so I have ordered seeds for Mountain Princess tomatoes, and I will also be trying Giant Marconi peppers. This time I will use different nutrient mixtures for the plants.
The reason I picked the tomato variety is because it can be grown in a container, and, it has full sized fruit. These should be interesting also.
Organic Mountain Princess Tomato - HEIRLOOM Mountain sweet goodness! Grown for generations in the Monongahela National Forest region of West Virginia. Fruits are 8-10 oz, orange-red and perfectly round with a mild tomato flavor. Very productive plants bear quick and early. Works well in containers. A customer favorite for six pack sales. Determinate(Lycopersicon esculentum)
Days to maturity:68 days
