Spring is Sprung

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

I took the optimistic plunge and gave Krankenberry a bath and a tune up. Amazingly, aside from her chain being disgusting and busted (I bought a fresh one), she suffered very little lasting wear and tear this winter, and looks good as new! I’m so proud.

In other optimistic news, I planted my stunted tobacco plants in our vegetable garden, in the hopes that they were only stunted due to lack of space and depression from cabin fever.

I also cleaned the house just in time for all my roommates to come home and cook ALL DAY LONG in my nice clean kitchen. Typical. An evil overlord’s work is never done.

My tobacco plants are flowering!

wee little ‘baccy flowers

I have no idea why this happened… or if it’s supposed to happen…

This is my first attempt at growing my own tobacco, and unfortunately the light table really wasn’t big enough to house as many plants as I wanted or get them as big as they need to be harvested. This means I’m going to have to transplant them to the garden some time in April so they can mature fully. I didn’t expect them to start wanting to have sex first! The flowers are sticky and smell like… tar, kinda. Not that great. But not terrible, either.  I wonder if I’ll get viable seeds out of this. Exciting!
