The topic: In late spring, I planted seeds

----------------------------------------------

They were planted out front, in big pots. I planted Indigo tomato seeds, beefsteak tomato seeds and two kinds of bell pepper seeds.

The seeds started to sprout in the mid-June. But they didn't grow very much. Because they weren't getting much sun. Last month, Brian moved them to the backyard, where there was a lot more sun.

And the Indigos started to thrive. They blossomed. They were pollinated. And thit morning, I counted ten tomatoes! The beefsteak plants started to blossom this week, so hopefully, we'll have some of those as well. One of the pots with the pepper plants was empty one morning. I found the worm that ate the plants and sent it on to its maker. The other pepper plants are still growing, just not very fast.

What surprises me is the indigo plants. When we had them in the ground, at the side of the house, they didn't have near the fruit that they do now, even though they were bigger and had more room to grow.
