I have tomato plants growing in 3 different houseplants. I must have added compost to my potting soil last fall.
The tomato plants themselves are winter-poor--pale green and leggy. Nevertheless, one of them has 2 ripe cherry tomatoes.
We know, theoretically, that stressed plants will bloom and fruit in order to reproduce before they die.
Our stressful mind states will also do just about anything to reproduce themselves.
Recently, my sweetie offered his concert ticket to a friend in a moment of open-hearted generosity. The next day he had second thoughts--and all of them were stressful. For instance, She is such a free-loader (Aversion) and Hey, wait a minute! I want to go too. (Desire.)
