Almost at the end of the growing season

I tried my best as keeping the plants alive this year.
Here's what's left:
- Star Jasmine "Jasmine"
- Johnny Tomato
- Blueberry "Jake"
- Jalapeño
- Calla lily "Lily Belle"
- egg plant (no flowers this year)

Since I'm in a 9/10 region (however with low sunlight due to apartments and trees), I'm going to try and get at least one or two tomatoes to ripen.
As I was cleaning today, I forgot that I had tied my tomato plant to another pot's support stick. So as I moved the tomato pot -- SNAP --. Oops, that'd be the strongest of the tomato plant left hanging on the support stick - in another pot. Le sigh. Fortunately there are a few flowers and buds growing still on the main stem line. I kept the broken off stems to see if they'd ripen off the plant. Here's to hoping.
The jalapeño plant was most successful.
I got 1 cucumber this year! Hooray!
The Calla Lily seems to be doing great. I hope she has flowers next year. I saw one for a short time this year. And wow, was it beautiful. Made me appreciate it more.
Star Jasmine finally was blooming flowers after the initial replanting shock. Hooray! I love the smell of star jasmines.
The Blueberry plant didn't grow any Buds this year. I think it takes a few years to start producing. Until then, we'll be patient.
We named the plants this year. It was fun. I think next year we will put name placards on each pot. I think that'd be fun. :-)


P.S. the plants that didn't grow/died/mauled by squirrels are on the green lid. Yep. :-(

The survivors.
