I'm sure for commercial purposes they do graft olive trees, Lig. My olive tree is grafted too, but not by me. The cuttings will still root however. I gave the ones I rooted this summer, away. I need to find out how they are doing now and if they're still surviving.


Sounds like a good plan, Nerd. It's not a super large tomato plant anyway...mine is nearly 2 feet tall and it's getting buds so I expect that it's a determinate variety. This couldn't be more amazing. I'm so excited about this type. We'll have dark blue tomatoes before you know it!


I'm also getting very excited about my "patio snacker" cucumber plant. It's taking off and getting quite big, under the halide. This is an early producing variety and its gonna be wonderful. I sent you some seeds with the others you wanted, Nerd!

Are you planning to grow cucumbers indoors this winter, Nerd? Or saving them for spring?

I'm going to try it out indoors! This is a new challenge for me. I know I can grow them outside so now it's time to see if I can grow them in.

This one will grow wonderfully for you Nerd, because its self-pollinating.


It's a dwarf variety too so it isn't going to get enormous. Perhaps a couple feel tall. I've got mine on a little mini trellis. I'll get another shot shortly because it's growing rapidly.

I've been harvesting delicious leaves from my "outredgeous" leaf lettuce...but leaving the center, to sprout new leaves. The leaves are getting more color to them now. It's grows in a south sun window....
