Re: rain....tomatoes

Jim, our usual heavy crop of wild tomatoes didn't materialize this year  
much.  Guess they need a bit more moisture than they got to yield a good  crop.  
The plants are still alive, but....not much fruit this year compared  to 
previous years.  Perhaps if we get some spring rains then they'll come  back.  
Hopefully.  We've had one good rainfall this year, so far, and  supposed to have 
another rain day this coming week (Tues).   Still no  winter to speak of at all, 
we've had a light frost once which didn't even knock  back the usually 
sensitive plants....so anything needing chill hours hasn't  gotten it at all.  
Unusually high temps here, not that I'm complaining at  all, but....we could have 
used more moisture.
Loved the Ode to the Garden hose poem, sent it out to all my gardening  
buddies here in TX.  They all loved it and said it was about time that  someone put 
to words how they felt.  I think the businesses around here  have sold more 
hoses this year than anything!

My roma  tomatoes are setting fruits--some already as big as Chilean   
grapes--and we're picking wild tomatoes, not huge numbers, but  enough  
every day or two for a salad or a cold pasta  sauce.
