Re: rain....tomatoes


Well, poop on that! When I saw the weather map this morning I thought you would surely get rain. :-( It's been raining here since this afternoon and isn't supposed to stop until sometime tomorrow.

Looks like you got some more good rain today.  We got a measly 1/8 of an
inch.  I wish I knew why we were being punished so.

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.
