Since the weather is the most important subject to us tomato growers I am going to give it to you first this morning, and also I am going to try and settle down more and talk more about Tomatoes and Smiles the two things that I am interested in producing, and stop some of the foolish things that I may have been doing.
Partly cloudy. High 12C. Winds WNW at 10 to 15 mph.
Partly cloudy skies. High 54F. Winds WNW at 10 to 15 mph.
When I think of producing tomatoes I always think of this link Dad's Tomato Garden Web Page I have read it hundreds of times, You will find so much helpful things there from day one until you are smiling with a big juicy tomato in your hand, DAD .
"Fruiting crops, including tomatoes, need full sun most of the day for good production of quality fruit. Good drainage is also important. In high to medium rainfall areas (more than 30 inches per year) work the soil into ridges and plant on the ridge or build raised beds 12 to 18 inches deep. Plan on setting out at least one cherry tomato and 4 to 6 large-fruited varieties depending on the number of fresh tomato lovers in your family. You'll need stakes or wire tomato cages to support the plants to keep the fruit off the ground where it would rot. To insure even and efficient watering, you will want to put in a drip or soaker hose system for watering. Finally, count on mulch to keep down the weeds."
I want to mention something about my side panel that is always on the right side of the journal. I will have listed there all of the links that I usually mention in the body of the journal, under consideration is for me to produce you an up up date side panel and you can go there and choose what and who you want to read. I spend some time trying to guess which links to show and I may not choose the right one.
At the present the list begins with American Profile Magazine and ends with the weather, this would be increased greatly. And it would affect all of you that are mentioned in it, it sure would save old Dad a lot of work. Remember this is only under consideration, any thoughts would be welcomed. DAD.
There are two things that I have not mentioned yet this morning, so I am doing it now. I do need as always to look in on Oreo at Sara's Dog Training blog and Sara always helps me, I get a smile.
The other is that Sumtra x bold Starbucks coffee, the coffee is ready also hot tea, stop in and visit me. Dad
A smile costs nothing, but gives much-It takes but a moment, but the memory of it usually lasts forever. None are so rich that can get along without it-And none are so poor but that can be made rich by it.
It enriches those who receive, without making poor those who give-It creates sunshine in the home, Fosters good will in business, And is the best antidote for trouble-And yet it cannot be begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is of no value Unless it is given away.
Some people are too busy to give you a smile-Give them one of yours-For the good Lord knows that no one needs a smile so badly As he or she who has no more smiles left to give.
I want to come again in the early morning
I am sending love and best wishes to all the world.
