Default First cherries!

Hi All,

I took a real risk this year planing my cherry
tomatoes a month early. Two freezes and they
survives. I was very, very luck. 6 of my 10
peppers did not.

Anyway, my foolishness paid off yesterday when
I harvested my first nine cherry tomatoes.

They were really, really YUMMY!!! Wife's
eyes sparkled.

Some time is pays to be an idiot!

:-)

well if you have time to babysit plants and protect
them from the cold.

way too many things here to worry about such issues.
i can be patient. in fact i'm so busy with other things
that i don't really notice if i'm having to be patient
about something else or not.

hot, no rain for a few weeks. coolest day in the
forecast for this week is 89F and that is next Saturday.
previous rain in the forecast has been removed and
changed to Friday. 93F today... i already watered
everything and basically will do other things inside
the rest of the day.

having seen someone get really sick from heat-stroke
i've decided i sure did not want to experience that so
i'm being a lot more careful...


Today
Sunny, with a high near 93. Light southwest wind.
Monday
Sunny and hot, with a high near 94. Light southwest wind.
Tuesday
Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 96. Calm wind becoming west southwest around 6 mph in the morning.
Wednesday
Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 95.
Thursday
Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 96.
Friday
A chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 93.
Saturday

We finally got some rain after a few dry weeks. There were thunderstorms at the north end of Chesapeake Bay which swept down here over the afternoon. We had three bursts of substantial rain lasting 5-10 minutes each time over about an hour. The temperature also dropped from 91 to 76 during that time.. They're predicting more rain over the coming week.

Me either. That is why is was a dumb move on my part.
I doubt I will ever get away with it again.
