It just started raining here, i think its supposed to rain all night and most of the day tomorrow. While we need it and it will be great for the ponds and all the wild vegetation, and for everyone to get another nice cutting of hay, my tomatos are not loving it.
I had to pick 3 good sized tomatos today that had just started to blush as they were cracking on the stem end. I dont mind so much as they were from the Parks Whopper and thats not the best tomato. Wont be planting that one again.
I just dont want my giant beefsteaks to crack. I have some monsters growing. Im having to make litlle hammocks to hold up the stems. Im hoping for giants!
If you guys havent noticed , im obsessed with my 8 tomato plants. The beefsteaks are at least 6 feet tall. And the one i gave up on and treated as a red headed stepchild as suggested, i found a fruit on it! I let my cilantro flower and go to seed and will replant some during this cool snap were having. Will also plant some oregano and more basil. Im letting some of the basil flower.
Can anyone tell me if there is any fall plant i could put in the 23 gallon container, it has a determinate in it now that is almost finished. Id like a vegetable if possible, if not i will do some fall flowers, mums or something.
I hope everyone down south and west get some rain, you guys really need it. Were expecting a minimum of 3 inches and flooding possible, although im up high enough i wont flood. I also see Grove is under the flood watch/warning.
No other watches or warnings though so that is good.
Last i heard about 37 thousand still without power in Tulsa area. I talked to a girl at the pedicure place, she had no power and had to go stay with friends, said it was warmer in her house than outside.
Maybe i should try and get some sleep, its hard for me to come by these days!
Wishing everyone lots of rain and no flooding!
