Will the Wife Notice the New Decor


I haven't been having good success with purchased tomato plants so this year I'm trying seed in cardboard / paper cups that are buried. I've put 3 seeds in each of different varieties and set this arrangement on top of the lamp that has a screw in florescent bulb. The white object adornment between cups is a Taylor outdoor remote thermometer and the temperature seems to be perfect @ around 74-76 F. Definitely won't meet any fire codes but they'll only be there a few weeks.



I'm wondering how long it will take or if the wife will notice the new decor when she gets home.

Depends on too many variables to be sure, but if it was me, I notice things that are different, that was not there yesterday.

So , I think that you need to get a good reason for this in the room.

Good luck with your endeavor to grow your own.

Just make sure that tomatoes are all you are growing, no weed allowed, this is a family based site don't ya know.

She'll notice. The real question is, will she like it?

It's about following the line with the scissors.

I always had trouble with that. So that's strike 1.

Maybe the 3 seed packets with beautiful red ripe tomatoes will suffice.

Reminds me why I'm happy living alone.


Thats a pretty lampshade. You better not get water on it when you moisten the seeds!

If she catches on to my tricks I'll pass the lamp shade compliment on to her. There is a pair of those in the LR but I ain't stickin my neck out to decor both.

Re: Will the Wife Notice the New Decor


I just knocked a standing lamp over in the dark. Would hate to see all that soil go flying!

Hope you are ok and don't need to visit the self doctoring posts for advise. I have an X-tra head lamp if you need it.

That would be a mess but it's fairly safe in the corner although it would probably go tumbling with an earthquake.

Re: Will the Wife Notice the New Decor


Does the thermometer have a probe going into the soil ? Can't tell...but it sounds like it does ? Where is the lamp...living room, bedroom, office ....?
