|Tomatoes: How They Were on the Plant
Left Side in the Shade, Right Side in the Sun
|The Shaded Side - Green
|The Side that Faced the Sun
According to last night's weather forecast, we were supposed to get a thunderstorm and some rain early this morning! We did receive about 10 drops of rain around 2:30 a.m., when I was getting ready for bed, but, then, it stopped and I thought that was that. But, according to M, we did get lightening and thunder and some rain very early this morning! I must have slept right through it! It was cloudy when I woke up, but, the ground was dry.
M was here in the morning to tend to the garden. He removed the tomatoes that were on the plant he gave me. These tomatoes are about an inch in diameter. You can see that they are still green on the sides that were not exposed to the sun and bleached white on the side that did receive the sun's burning rays. I think it is accurate to say that the tomatoes got cooked on the plant! We also harvested a handful of tiny potatoes - there were a total of five and they all fit into the palm of my hand! I boiled them and my daughter and I had them with our dinner!
Daughter and I spent a pleasant afternoon painting! First, we did some water color painting:
