My plants

Note: This was meant to be Monday’s post, but work got busy and I didn’t have a chance to finish it.

A few weeks ago, inspired by PF’s gardening experiment, I bought a pair of tomato plants. I’ve been having to take them inside at night and during cold snaps, which they don’t like as they desire more sun, but I had high hopes.

This is Charlie, the Italian Rose Tomato plant, shortly after transplanting:

And this was Bill, the Watermelon Beefsteak plant:

Unfortunately, we had an unexpected¬† storm a few days ago and Bill’s stem got damaged:

I don’t think the little guy’s going to pull through :( RIP Bill. I’ll have to order a replacement.

Any tips for how to keep Bill II happy?

    Might sticking the broken-off part in the dirt work? Last year when a large branch snapped off one of my tomato plants, I got surprisingly good results just sticking it in the ground and watering. It grew roots and turned into a whole new tomato plant, and I got several tomatoes off it before the end of the season.

      We pinched off the stem at the broken part, in the hopes the healthy stem underneath would regrow, but it’s just withering and shriveling from the top down.
