Tower Garden Update!


Two days of 24/7 impeachment coverage, means that being in the garden is even more important these days. It's such a lovely distraction.


AND I can tell that some of my daffodils are going to bloom this week. I'm positive. AND I know that my Valentine is taking me to Armstrong nursery for a treat -- so I have lots of plans!


But here's the big big news!!!!! I got an appointment for a hair cut!!!! I'm going to do it in my backyard, and double mask. And I know that my stylist will wear a mask, so I'm sure it will be safe. Can't wait!


We are still struggling with trying to get the vaccine. Even though we are both born in 1956, which is the magic year for getting the vaccination, there are no sites that will let us sign up because we won't actually be 65 until April and June. It's so maddening. We have been told by our doctors, by our health care facility, and by LA County, that we are "on the list" and that we will be notified when our turn comes up.


I just hope that's soon.

Thank you Jill, for letting me know my recollection of you and Robert at Dodger Stadium had some basis in reality!

If you can get a regular supply of fresh cherry or grape tomatoes all summer in your tower, I say who cares about growing root vegetables!!! I have a friend in the Midwest who grew a few cherry tomato plants on the sunniest wall of her small front courtyard every year. She had more sweet tomatoes than she could eat. I think that's exciting and a real treat!


She did have a running battle with birds and chipmunks, but she seemed to have enough tomatoes for "everyone." (Lots of her little tomatoes were hidden under the thick vines on

CC - There's no need to transplant the plants grow to maturity in the tower -- BUT you cannot grow root vegetables in the tower. Lettuce, tomatoes, flowers -- all those work. We did get a Covid test at Dodger Stadium but NOT the vaccine! Argh!

Hi Jill! The tower garden looks great! I was wondering if the instructions explain whether you can continue to grow plants to a large size in the tower or if you will need to transplant the lettuce and some of the other plants as they get bigger? Also, I must be imagining things because I thought you and Robert went to Dodger Stadium and got the vaccine already. Sorry you are having trouble with it. It's been such a frustrating issue. Hopefully you'll get an email soon saying you can go in since Biden has been increasing the number of doses available and it is your 65th year! Good luck!
