Seems like I’ve missed the summer this year. Again.
Maybe it was that the weather was not so summery this year overall. Maybe it was working long hours at the office most of the time. Probably both.
The chestnut trees are already losing their leaves (but I think they have some kind of disease, it’s only August after all) and the other day I was standing at the bus stop and the wind was whisking dead leaves around my feet and it felt like the summer is over.
Weeks ago I accidentally broke off part of the stem of one of my tomato plants. I put it in a glass of water and it started growing roots, so I planted in a pot of its own.
Just when I thought it had pulled through, I broke it off again (accidentally, of course). Not sure how much abuse a little plant like that can take.
But at least its mother plant continued to grow fine.
Another one of my plants, that was already carrying small green fruit, I dropped from quite some height and the stem broke off completely. I doubt that a big plant like that can grow new roots quick enough to recover.
