Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow...Tomatoes...Flotsam
So, yeah, I'm trapped in my home. Thankfully, I saw fit to get prepared when I first heard about this potentially mega snowstorm hitting two weeks ago. We may be trapped but we've got plenty to chow down on. See below...

The potted plants are doing well. Spider plant and Snake plant are growing very vigorously.

The Lemongrass needs a serious trim. I might make some tea and/or stir fry later this week.

All that remains, aside from the Spider and Snake plants, of my larger container garden. For now, I just have, aside from the above mentioned, Aloe Vera, Pineapples, and a Pelargonium growing. I may add a Golden Pothos (Epipremnum aureum) and a Swedish Ivy (Plectranthus verticillatus) to the mix.

The tomatoes in the Aerogarden of Hope have really taken off since the last one ripened on the vine. Now, I have multiple tomatoes coming in, with some ripening even as I type this. All I know to do is trim the vines and keep both plants in water and Liquid nutrient. If I ever get that Aerogarden Bounty, I'll use this older model (Ultra LED) for growth experiments and extra growing space. I'll probably dedicate it to growing Herbs or something.

To keep from being bored, I've done a bit of baking before, during, and after the storm. This chocolate chip riddled banana bread was absolutely delicious.

This Bread pudding wasn't bad either. In fact, the Maternal Parental ate most of it before the storm had even done its worst.

Last but not least, some icicles outside my bedroom window. I don't know how big they're going to get but, no thanks to some neighborhood kids, they're now tipping right towards my window.

The banana bread with chocolate would definitely be comfort food during the heavy snowfall!
Oh, it was Frank, it was. I think, from now on, I'm going to make it with chocolate chips.
Photos look great Xant. Quite a storm you had. I am curious about your Aerogarden of Hope. Is it a greenhouse affair or a grow light?
Thank you, Cayuga Morning, for your compliments and thanks for commenting. :)
