Tomatoe Fail

I am in the middle of my first garden fail of the year.   Way back in March I planted my pepper and tomato seeds. The plants sprouted just fine and everything was going the way it should.  Then there was Bijou.  Bijou is a 16 year old cat who came into my life when he was a 3 week old kitten and maybe gets away with more than he should.  He  decided that tomato seedlings that are sitting on a sunny windowsill made the perfect cat bed. so he curled up on them for a nap.  Needless to say he killed all of then.  I decided I would try again since I still have a few weeks before the danger of frost has past.  So far one has sprouted.  Looks like I am growing tomatoes from transplants this year.  Lesson learned?  Stick toothpicks in starter trays to make them uncomfortable.

What have you failed at recently? What did you learn from it?  Leave me comment and let me know

One thought on “Tomatoe Fail

  1. I forgot to put the cover on my sprouting tray and Kitt Bull decided that Japanese Maple seedlings were actually that red stuff from mesclun salad, to go with her cat grass. Don’t you love it when a cat gives you that “how can you have treated me with such deception?” look? She believes the rule is if I give her one plant to eat, I should expect her to eat any plant she runs across, including silk ones.
