We had about an inch and four-tenths of rain earlier in the week, and last night had another tenth.
|The petunias are coming along nicely (please ignore the view across the alley|
of the hoarder's backyard).
One was a lone, leftover petunia. I just put it in a small pot I hadn't planned on using this year.
The other was a rather large tomato plant.
I had decided this year to grow tomatoes in the two large corner pots on my deck. I bought two sizes of tomato plants (different varieties), in hope that the fruiting season would thus be extended. One is a nice, healthy, sturdy, but small yet, plant and the other was a large plant. I planted the small one at the same time as I was planting flowers.
There was a problem with transplanting the big one. It was in a large, tough plastic pot with an equally tough attached cage. I thought about just leaving it in the pot it came in, but really wanted it in the big pot.
This morning Chad was working in his backyard and I called down to him for help. He performed successful surgery on the plastic cage and got the tomato extracted. It is now living in the big pot and I hope I'll get a nice tomato crop from it.
Now I'll just be worried about hail and wind storms!
Having finished my little planting chores, it was time to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck.
There is a lot of humidity in the air, and the clouds began rapidly building up. Between ten and eleven o'clock we went from sunny to cloudy. The clouds were moving fast. I watched a large black cloud move in and then, just as quickly, it moved over and was gone. But there were more following it. I sky-watched for awhile before I came in. Clouds are always fascinating.
And that was my morning.
