I'm determined to get a decent crop of tomatoes and peppers this year! I live in an apartment complex, so my options only include planting in pots. I have some things planted in the lawn outside of my terrace but I don't think those are supposed to be there...

Anyway, last year I harvested all of 7 grape tomatoes. I've switched things around this year in hopes of getting a better return. I have larger pots, better soil, and more plants. Probability alone says I should get at least 21 grape tomatoes! Everything is already flowering. I'm hoping to get a pepper this year.

I'm pretty proud of my 2 foot tall plants! Unfortunately, my parents aren't having as much luck. Chipmunks apparently love tomato plants. They have planted at least 2 separate tomato crops due to the insatiable appetite of the chipmunk family!

All of my houseplants are outside and loving the humidity. My hibiscus should bloom in a month or so. I can't wait to photograph that!

Keep an eye on my blog - I'll be releasing more photos and details on an up coming sale and giveaway!

I have finally made it to the front page of Etsy! It was quite a surprise since I was just heading to Etsy to mark an item as shipped and there I was! Here's the item that was featured...
As an aside, I'm going to be having a huge sale/giveaway rolled into one next month for my birthday so keep a look out!
