Stand up and take a bow!!!! cheers



Ha-v-v, that's what I'm on in my picture. It still runs, but I would love to decorate it, seasonally, including Christmas lights..... Hubby and Father-in-Law (owner of the tractor) would kill me.

I once had to clean mashed taters off of my screen, I spewed them all over laughing at something I was reading.

Acara, I often wondered if Cain was looking over his brother's fence and got jealous...

Just got some needed rain looks like I was far enough south to miss the bad part,,



Here is the first ripe tom,, would frame it if I could , arguing with the LW about eating it. I want to eat it now cause I like the firm pink ones , she wants to wait until its really ripe red.

I bet she gets her way!

That pink thing is a 11 oz Trust Beefsteak had to post a pic so everyone would believe me,,It may have gone to a full 12 oz's If I would have left it on the vine,, I did learn an interesting fact searching the web about what makes tom's start to ripen.
There are gobs of people talking about temps and water and fertilyzer but the best data I found was a statement that toms wont start to turn until 5 - 6 truss's have set fruit, DUH that makes so much sense ,, we have 3 or 4 more turning as I type so I think the game is on, gotta get my harvesting buckets down off the shelf.
