Tomato Harvest…….oh really?

Bloged in General Home Life by mark Tuesday August 10, 2010

I am reading of a few but “rare” folk in the region who are actually picking tomatoes out of their gardens. It’s true they live about 700 feet lower in elevation than we do…………. …. .. . and I must admit, we’ve had “4″ very small tomatoes getting ripe for a while…. truth is however, they are a result of the couple of blooms that were ON the plant when they came from the grower…..

I’ve been watchin’ ‘em….waiting……and yesterday while watering, knew it was the perfect moment. (There ARE hundreds of blooms, and dozens of tiny very GREEN tomatoes ON the plants)……. So, I picked one…… WHAT? NO! The backside had been eaten out by squirrels! I picked the second one…….SAME thing! NO. So, I got to HARVEST TWO tiny lovely tomatoes out of this garden in AUGUST…..

Squirrels are those lovely cute yard animals you have a love/hate relationship with…………

On other fronts:
1) A bit of company this weekend……. we’re excited about that, although their visit is to attend a friend’s memorial service…… we will be HAPPY to see them. ***UGH, it means I gots to git busy cleaning up in here.

2) They’re from Tucson and we’re looking forward to a break from their heat. Unfortunately, in a RARE event for us this summer, temps all weekend are now forecast to be between 90-95….we have NO A/C……sorry ’bout that. At least, Homer, we got another quart of Raspberry Jam made for ya.

3) We got our Apricot Jam finished……COOL. AND, we picked RIPE peaches…..THAT jam didn’t work so well….have to work on that. The peach ice cream’s okay.

4) House Guest: Buddy…..the pup, is here one more day, and I must check in with him…..HE can’t wait for his morning walk down into the park……

5) I DO hope to finish “The Art of Racing in the Rain”……..a weird little novel told from the viewpoint of the dog, the main character in the story.
