My New Sickly Baby
I found it on the bottom shelf, freezing, in the reduced price section of the outside plant display.
African Violet Rescue Plant ( photo / image / picture from xantedeschia's Garden )
This is my new Saintpaulia baby. I fully intend on getting a large collection of African violets. What I didn't count on was getting them for pennies. Yep, this plant cost me the princely sum of 27 cents USD.
As soon as I get more money, I'm going back for the rest of them. That's a promise.
Not much else is happening. Things are shooting to the skies in my garden. The sweet potato, that I was going to give up on ever sprouting, looks insane right now. I have a compact florescent bulb (is it really a bulb?) and the sweet potato is pretty close to it. I tend to leave it on all night due to my not sleeping at night. So, all my plants grow towards it during the night time hours.
The twin tomatoes have more flower buds growing in, the nasturtiums are shooting out of the soil, and all the rest are growing vigorously.
Tomorrow (Friday) is the day I fertilize nearly everything. I'm hesitant to fertilize the seedlings. I don't want them to get overfed. They're in new soil, which has fertilizer already, so I'm probably going to hold back on them. Everything else, except for the fern, twin tomatoes, pineapples etc are getting dumped on.
I was looking at old pictures of some of my plants in my Picasa account. It's hard to believe they're the same as the scraggly scrawny plants I grew years ago. Here's to hoping they grow even better and stronger than they've ever grown. :)

I would love to see an update photo when the African Violet gets stronger. Love it when plants get rescued and prove that they were worth more than being on the bottom of a reduced price shelf, for 27 cents :)
I certainly will provide it. It actually looks perkier already. I think it was just cold before.
