We don’t hear the ‘This is a test, and only a test’ words as much as we used to on TV and radio. But, this coming Wednesday there will be a national test of IPAWS, the nationwide emergency alert system.
We’ve gone from the hot and dry season to the warm and wet season, and it seems to be perfect for growing fungi. This one is on the edge of the woods – and is more than a foot long.
We have four tomato plants growing in the greenhouse. They have been flowering for a few days, and since there are no bees in the greenhouse the flowers have to be pollinated by hand.
Each morning we take a small paintbrush and gently brush inside each flower, move to the next flower, and so on to pollinate the plants.
Success! This morning we have our first baby tomato starting to grow!
