Lightening, Camera, Tomato!
On Tuesday evening we had a few nasty storms roll through our area, so as the batch of Lightening passed over the front of our house, I figured it to be an opportune time to try and get a bolt. With Sam drooling everywhere and trembling at my side, I stepped out front and managed this photo - out of about 65 shots - which caught the lightening.
Wicked! After 60+ shots, your patience wanes a bit, but I finally managed.
And Tomatoes. Where would I be without the Tomatoes? As you can see, they exploded with joy since my last post about them on the 3rd of June!
The plant on the left is the picture taken on the 3rd of June.
The one on the right was taken on the 12th of June of the same plant.
It exploded with all the heat and what not we've had around here, and the soil has definitely warmed. A few of them are starting to flower. I have no clue if we're going in the right direction here as this is my first time starting them from seed, but I'm hoping all is well!
It's totally out of control. When I started the seeds I planted 15 thinking I may have a few that don't grow for whatever reason. Turns out 13 out of 15 grew, and I didn't have anymore room in the garden so I planted the rest in pots. A few of them are leggy because I didn't know what to do with them, but I eventually gave in last week and planted them instead of letting them die. Plants are everywhere.
And if you're sitting at work right now and would like some free radio, check out Pandora.com. It's pretty neat, you enter an artist or song you like and it will build you a station which associates that artist/song with a genre and compiles a bunch of stuff. It works really well.
