They Grow Up So Fast!

I was tending to my plants today. Suddenly, I realized, they had grown quite a bit!

So cayenne/soap everyday for 2 weeks.

Then like once every 2 weeks.

The plants sure have grown – and healthy, as far as my untrained eye can tell. Here are the before and after pictures (from the top)!

I have flowers, but I can’t tell why they just keep leaving – I saw a pale-green cricket on it earlier – maybe they are responsible, or maybe it’s normal. –I’m so clueless! 🙂 —
