So, here's a progress report on our tomato plants... these haven't grown particularly high, but they're producing the most tomatoes so far. I didn't even plant these one... they just sprung up without any warning, but they appear to be pretty hearty. The ones in the greenhouse, I've followed the directions, removed all the extra branches and leaves, put stakes in the ground to keep them from falling over and still no significant results. These ones on the island, I pretty much ignore, and they're growing like weed!
I planted this sunflower from seed a few months ago and it was slow to germinate, but then all of a sudden it shot up like the magic bean stalk. It's a least 8 feet tall, if not taller. It's impressive to be sure!

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
