I'm so happy it's finally May! The non-evergreen trees have all their leaves, the cherry blossoms have graced us with their presence, and the local plant sales are all about to start! I almost understand the urge to dance a ribbon around a tall pole. Almost.
At this point, it may surprise some of you to learn that I occasionally grow things not in water. I know what you're thinking - why would anyone ever bother with messy, "ground" stuff? Well fear not, this post involves no soil whatsoever. Today I have for you the story of Pegasus, my adorable air plant.
Alright, so the tomatillo plants have been successfully transplanted and no one died! They even stayed pretty green despite relying solely on the window for light in February. In case you've never visited the Pacific Northwest in February, the amount of light coming through the thick layer of gray clouds is roughly the same amount of light given off by a dying glowstick. It's not technically even enough light for humans which is why so many of us have a medical vitamin D deficiency and are forced to take supplements. So I was very thankful the tomatillos were still alive.
