- Gardening takes patience. I am a man that likes instant gratification. Growing is the opposite of that. It will be months before I see the fruits of my labor.
- Making something grow is pretty simple. All you need is light, water, nutrients and TLC. Or so the guy at the gardening supply store said.
- Cats are inherently interested in plants. That is now the number #1 threat to the future of these tomatoes. Not lack of food or water, not natural disaster, not my lack of experience. Our evil cat.
Trying new things is fun. You learn new skills, get to practice valuable traits (for me, patience) and may even get some delicious homegrown tomatoes. Maybe.
PS - These are growing on my balcony so my cat can either eat the plants or knock the whole contraption to a three story fall.
