The cool nights are continuing, even though the days are upper 80’s/low 90’s. So this morning decided to pull more tomatoes and harvest green ones before we have a frost and I lose them totally.
Have commented previously on the strange behaviour of the Romas. These seedlings were planted early/mid May, 73-80 day maturity, with wall-o-waters. yet, here we are in mid-September with new flowers, unripe undersized fruit! Anyway, harvested some green tomatoes today, enough to at least make a trial run of green tomato relish.
So here I am in the garden, and suddenly realize there’s a dead rabbit in there with me!! How I could miss it, can’t imagine, as it was lying in plain sight! So fresh the eyes were still clear. A little freaked out.
Then found a young gopher snake, sluggish from the cool.
