Another short version for today. I could say a “slow news” week but it’s more a case of a “lazy blogger.”
Another one bites the dust! – I have been growing a cherry tomato plant in a pot on my deck. It’s grown tall — too tall. I should have chosen a patio variety but I find the cherry ones sweeter. It was started late because the deck wasn’t finished. I had a good crop (for a pot) of tomatoes on it until Thursday. The best I can surmise is that a squirrel sitting on the deck pulled it over to nosh on it. The top was bitten off and the entire plant was laying on the deck on its side. About 80% of the baby tomatoes were scattered over the deck. Now I have a ginormous plant with about a dozen or two baby tomatoes nowhere near ripening. Do I have the patience to keep watering it? Cherry tomatoes grow too tall to keep in a container. They get top heavy. There is nothing like a tomato you pick yourself and eat but that is not happening this year. I’ll have to give it more thought next year.
Summer TV – I’ve been watching old detective shows like “Rizzoli and Isles” and “Castle” while regular programming is in hiatus. I found some old shows of “Cold Case.” I watched a few and I noticed the “tethered” phones with the curly cords on the detectives’ desks. Wow! How old is that? I kept yelling at the screen to try newer techniques like DNA testing and the spectrometer. We have come a long way baby!
So how was your week?
