I can smell summer!
My basement smells like summer.
You know when you're walking in your garden and brush against a tomato plant or when you touch the plant and get a whiff of that overwhelming tomato-plant-smell?
The tomato plants I've been growing from seed are so big now that I can run my hands across the stems or rub the leaves and smell the goodness. It's like a junkie getting a fix, it smells soooo good. Winter deprives us of these awesome smells and I'm definitely feeling very dismal because of it, lol.
The downside of the plants getting this big is that I have to repot them again now into cups. Have I mentioned that I'm so out of space under the lights that I now have to rotate? 9 trays under the lights during the day and 9 trays at night.
They truly have overtaken the house.
