Day 3 of the New Year already and to be honest the weather has been pretty good, lots of sun to bake in, and a bit of wind to dry Ma's washing. All of you that are freezing cold, I am thinking of you, however you cannot have my sun just yet...
We got some new pets the other day... there are about 75 of them aparently however some are yet to hatch. I have been waiting anxiously for them to grow so I can play with them, or so I can teach them some Learning of the MD, however Ma says that this is unlikely to happen and I'd probably slurp them up by accident if given the chance. My slobbers could kill them.
So Seamonkeys it is:
They are very tiny at the moment, only 4 days old but the box said that they can grow to 3/4 inch long! Seamonkeys are a subspecies of shrimp called Artemia Nyos and to be quite honest they look a bit dorky flapping and jerking round the place. There is a very informative website here that answers all those inkling questions.
Heres a bit of colour for a Monday:
Ma bought a "grow your own tomatoes" pack in September. It came with 6 tomato seeds and a pot and everything. In November this is how far they had come:
Ma had weeded out two of the sadder looking seedlings. Look at this tiny pot. How in dogs name were they meant to flourish in there!
They are aparently a dwarf tomato. This doesn't explain why as of last week - they are THIS big:
There is even little tomatoes popping up. Ma is most pleased with her efforts however she would like to say that she absolutely despises tomatoes...
Oh happy days!
