Today's Checkmarks...

July 30th, 2012 at 01:26 am

I spent today finishing laundry, including bedding, and getting all the clothes that I am taking to Alaska ready to pack.

I found all the airplane sized bottles that we have on hand and have them ready to fill with shampoo, etc.

I had been taking care of the tomato plants that I was given last month, but had not planted them yet...but DD2 and I did so today.

I have started a list of to-dos for DD3, who will be house-sitting for me. #1 on the list, WATER THE TOMATO PLANTS. Big Grin I sure hope she does as they will not make it in this heat if she forgets. I am looking forward to some fresh off the vine tomatoes when we get back.

I have the suitcase out and am packing the things I dont need this week.

I am enjoying a break to watch the womens gymnastics part of the olympics. How those young ladies do those balance beams, vaults and uneven bars is beyond me. But I love watching.

My to do list this week is to buy dog food and refill my meds. Otherwise, everything is about done for this exciting adventure!! (I leave Thursday...cant wait!!)

Here is one of the things we get to do while we are there:

I made oatmeal tonight for breakfast Mon- Wed.

    Hello Ray, I am so envious of your trip to the North. About the tomato plants... I've heard that if the plants have fruit you need to water each plant with a gallon of water per day. This shocked me. Maybe you could put out those 2 litre pop bottles filled with water to ensure they each get enough. Just a thought.

    WiaWL: That is a GREAT idea for the plants. I will definately do it. I want them to be alive when I get home and DD3 is sometimes, well, forgetful. Big Grin

    I was told to NOT water once tomatoes start popping ... That's what I did (after being told that) and more tomatoes popped out .. Something about the juiciness / taste - that the tomatoes use food from the plant because the plant isn't using it to grow up up up. What I know about growing plants could fit on my pinky nail though ...Smile
