More on the Experiment Plants!! Read Blog of 6-21-2018
Anything is possible! Planter on the deck with
Straight-necked Squash growing when the cabbages were all torn up and eaten up. I just planted something else. Doesn't hurt to try!
DON'T THROW IT AWAY! LET IT GROW! THAT'S MY NEW MOTTO!
On June 18th the tomato was destroyed. Broken off by a critter! The pepper plant was my own fault. Leaned over to try and fix the tomato (lost cause) and broke off the pepper.
First I took the top of the tomato and shoved it in the soil. No special treatment. Took off one leaf and shoved it in to the top portion. The bottom part I was going to pull up but then decided to leave it just to see if it would grow and possibly bare fruit.

Now the pepper I didn't have much hope for. First of all the chipmunk came through the holes on the cage I put around it. They also burrowed under it. Thought for sure the part I pushed into the ground was done for. I think I replanted it at least two times. Here are the pictures of the pepper from before:
there were only a couple of leaves and you should have seen it after I replanted the 2nd time. Looked really bad
Now today, I looked at these plants. The tomato looks almost like one you plant in the spring that has been growing a bit.

|Tiny little buds have appeared too|
|Would you believe this was the top I stuffed in the ground? 7-20-2018|
A month later.
|And look at that poor sickly top. 7-20-2018.|
Now I wonder if it will bare fruit!
|Most of the energy has gone to growing but|
