We have a nice window box in the kitchen where we decided we would try to grow some small, edible plants: tomatoes, spinach, cilantro, basil, some sort of lettuce, and something I can't identify yet. (We threw away the instructions as soon as they were planted and we can't remember what, exactly, was planted.)
The tomato plants are growing like mad and are huge water hogs. Since we are growing them indoors we don't, as of yet, have any kind of cages for them. (Chickens are cage free. Why not tomatoes?) But they got droopy so in order to prop them up a little I stuck some forks in the dirt and leaned their tender stalks upon the tines.
The lettuce has totally freaked out and may require psychiatric help and the spinach, I swear, is un-growing back into the dirt.
