The plants are still alive!

We survived the order to boil our water for those 2 ½ painfully warm days.  You know I’m not quite sure how we survived it because we are very much creatures of habit and things like not being able to wash our dishes was a major annoyance.  On top of that nonsense, we had to run out to Home Depot to pick up air conditioning units for our second story apartment that has some beautiful new windows but does not have central air.  This sounds easy enough, but let me tell you, it was not easy at all.  There was a lot of sweating involved in just getting to the store, just loading them (2 units – 1 portable and 1 window) into the car, then out of the car, then up the stairs, then installed… my husband did a lot of lifting and sweating, and I just tried to stay out of his way.  Everyone has something that they just can’t tolerate well, his is over heating.  Mine is being cold/and or hungry, both is a lethal combination.  Thank goodness we got them when we did though, I can’t imagine trying to sleep in this humidity two days later.  New England is a jerk like that: cold, hot, raining, flooding, massive humidity, frost, 90 degrees.   
Our portable air conditioning unit reminds me of a robot.  A robot who cools our living room but appears that it might also be able to make me dinner, but it doesn’t, it just cools.  I would just love to have a Jetson-style maid/cook to take care of it all and if it was made by LG even better.
And with all the heat and humidity, our little seedlings have been sprouting away!  It’s actually amazing how quickly they went from a useless seed to a full blown seedling with root systems.  They’ll be ready for transfer into bigger pots very soon.  I’m not sure how that is going to go though, I mean where do we put say…24 seedlings each in their own pot??  We should have thought about this.  I just assumed that they all wouldn’t be growing so well and we’d lose some along the way, but I also didn’t expect Abe to put so much attention on their well being.  He nurtured those suckers.

Grow little seedlings, Grow!!  How amazing will this be when we can actually eat the tomatos that we’ve grown entirely indoors?  It might take a miracle to get there, but it’s possible.
