Looks a good match to me.

weeds

Posted: Yesterday at 17:24

I take it you want a lawn?

Black plastic will not be needed as the seeds will still be there after you remove it. Just keep hoeing the weeds as they come. 

You need to get the preparation right for a lawn so a lot more reading before you go ahead. Getting it right from the start will prevent many future problems. 

Salvia or Nepetia?

Nepeta sibirica.

If i did not know better I would have said that this pic came from the same plant as ladygardener2.

Supermarket tomato sprouting

Posted: Yesterday at 16:24

It is called Vivipary, Latin for Live Birth. It is the term for plants that begin growing while still inside  or attached to the mother plant.It is common in certain varieties of tomatoes, peppers, apple, pears and some citrus but I have never seen it myself.

Vivipary happens when the  hormone controlling the seed dormancy is exhausted or runs out, letting the seed grow in the moist environment inside the fruit. This warm, moist environment is perfect for germinating seed to grow. If the tomato was left uncut in the warm conditions, the new plant sprout would eventually poke through the skin of the now decomposing tomato. These new plants can be potted up and grow into a large tomato plant and even produce tomatoes. The tomatoes will not be a clone of the mother plant, because it grew from a seed that had to be pollinated by another tomato flower, introducing new parent genes into the seed that will produce the new plant. The tomatoes off of the plant are entirely edible and quite possibly delicious.

Tomato leaf problem

Posted: 04/07/2015 at 17:08

looks like Sun scorch or sunscald it occurs when wet leaves, usually behind glass, are in direct sunlight for enough time for the water dropletts to act as a magnifying glass and burn marks in the leaves. Water the plant at the base at night, to prevent this.

It’s rare to see more than a few leaves affected and it does no serious damage to the growth of a plant.
