Glad your tomatoes are making it, with a lot of your hard work. Enjoy them, and stay cool.
Is there anything better than a grown-in-your-own-garden tomato? I think I will Edit Ben Franklin, Beer and Tomatoes are proof god loves us and wants us to be happy.
Sorry I got sidetracked. Hang in there!

If there is a silver lining to this drought... maybe it will make us reconsider turning decent food (corn), scarce water and great fuel (gasoline) into low quality fuel (ethanol).

I too heard that thunder and saw the lightning this morning.
I looked out at my plants and saw a hole in my shadecloth causing it to slip down from its stake and hit the plants. I figured that I'd better repair it before the rain came in.

Here I am at 3:00 am on a ladder repairing a hole with lightning flashing all around me. Got it fixed and headed back inside thinking to myself "bring that rain, and bring it hard". Of course it only sprinkled for about 3 minutes.
