When my mom got back down south she decided that I needed tomato plants for my new planter that I bought myself. I was content to not have tomatos this summer since I hadn't started any early. But mom insisted. So she came up with this idea- buy started tomato plants, stick them in a water bottle (cutting in half, and then taping together), add a little water, and put into an express post envelope. Well it worked! She put them in the mail from Dawson Creek, BC on a Tuesday and I got them 2 days later on Thursday! Canada post has never been that quick. So the plants look great and I have them planted. Perhaps I will have tomatoes this year!

Here is a tomato planted in my new planter. The tomatoes hang out the bottom!
I also baked a cake for a friends kid last weekend. It is supposed to be a dinosaur! I had fun making it and the birthday boy liked it- so that is all that matters!
