I love YouTube.

There are so many different random, funny, and educational videos you can find (sometimes they fit all three!).

I decided to see what tomato-related videos I could find. Enjoy!

Time Lapse Tomato

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you left a tomato out for 2 months? This video uses time lapse photography to show the results.

Upside Down Tomatoes

Growing tomatoes upside down is becoming more widely used. The newspaper The Oregonian produced a video showing how to set up your own upside down tomato garden. Read the rest of this entry »

    Written by white6416r Blog about this entry

    In the mood space this morning I said that my mood was thankful, and that is the way that I feel. Just so thankful to see the light of another day, We know that for all  of us that our time on this earth is short, swiftly passing away.

    Time is so precious-do not waste it.                © 2008 by Ray F White.

    I hope that all of you are feeling good, and that you had a good rest last night, now we can go out into this cold cruel world with a smile on our face. Maybe  we should get us a cup of coffee or tea before we go. It's ready and waiting . Come on in we are just plain old home folks, kick off your shoes  sit down and talk to me, see if you can make me smile.

    Here is my thought for this Thursday

    morning.

    " There is a way, a humble way, a way of truth and grace-

    The highway of God's righteousness, where self can have no place."

    This is one verse of one of our hymns that we sing often and I do want to give credit to R. L. Allen & sons of Glasgow Scotland for giving Dad permission to use it.

      Garden Friends Part 1: Attracting Hummingbirds

      By Cindy Naas

      My favorite birds are hummingbirds.

      These tiny, vibrant creatures can bring a smile in an instant.

      I love their natural curiosity and how they are able to appear motionless. Besides a hummingbird feeder, there are many plants that will attract them. Here are a few of my favorites.

      1) Sunset Hyssop (Agastache rupestris)

      All of the hyssops that have pink or orange flowers attract hummingbirds, but my favorite is Sunset hyssop. These flowers are a brilliant mixture of orange, purple and pink. When I worked at a water conservation garden, I loved pruning by this plant. The hummingbirds were always nearby, sparring. Sometimes they would zip right near my head to see what I was doing. This plant has a splendid scent - described as licorice or root beer. Once it is established, it is drought resistant

      2) Hummingbird Trumpet (Zauschneria spp)

      These trumpet-shaped flowers come Read the rest of this entry »

        TC Reader Question: Help!Insects are Killing my Tomato Plants

        By Kira Hamman

        “Can you help us identify this bug that is killing our tomato plants? It isvery tiny, white,multi-legged (maybe 6 legs - too small to determine), goes in and hollows out the root and stem of the tomato plants.”

        This is tricky without a photo. Tiny white bugs that attack tomatoes include whiteflies and aphids (which come in virtually every color of the rainbow), although neither of those matches your description perfectly.

        Whiteflies are generally found around the flowers of tomato plants, so if you’re seeing these guys on the roots and stem, it’s probably Read the rest of this entry »
