Homegrown Poinsettias

Last year I decided I was going to try to regrow our poinsettias from Christmas. So here's what they look like this year. Now I know that I should probably have isolated them from light little sooner in hopes of getting them to change little more profusely.

Poinsettia

Last Christmas I decided I was going to try to keep out poinsettias alive to have the following Christmas. I got the idea from this garden blog I follow: http://www.agardenforthehouse.com/2011/12/the-poinsettia-has-a-future/

I have three in the basement sheltered from all light, so they only get a few hours of light a day on a timer and then are in complete darkness for the rest of the time. One is starting to take color.

Tomato Harvest

Our tomatoes are now finally in full swing. The Porter tomato has been producing for a while now, but the others finally started catching up.

Heirloom Tomatoes

We've started to harvest some of our heirloom tomatoes. They've been slow to grow this year, at least it feels that, but they are extra tasty.
