Since I get up late, rushing in to work, Mike’s been doing the daily watering. There’s not much to see at this point. Our tomatoes are done. The chives still have two or three strands each. We’ve been using the basil sparingly (the purple variety’s leaves do look really cool). The small lettuces are bolting. The peppers each have a fruit, but they aren’t growing much. One stem of the passion flower has survived, though we are getting no more flowers. We periodically spray the fig, which should be repotted but I’m hesitant to do so, since that seems to kill most things. Even two of the indoor plants are dead or near dead, and not for any obvious mistreatment on our part. Unless this gets significantly easier in the winter, I’m going to have to find myself a new hobby.
