Conservation through cultivation

It is tomato plant time down here





It is after March 1st and the 15 day forecast has no night time temperatures below 50′. That means it should be safe for the tomato plants to be planted outside. It is a good thing too, they were climbing out of their pots.

I have some Mother-in-Law Tongues that were a bit frost damaged. I trimmed off the damaged leaves today. I also moved them to a drier location. They want only slightly more water than do cactus plants. I now have them in a location that is both shady and dry. They are probably my best hope of getting anything to grow there. Time will tell. You can see them on the right side of the webcam image.
