Dancing Thru


I expect that either tomorrow or Saturday, I will be eating my first tomato. The first two started coloring up on Monday, and are starting to look distinctly...tomato colored. They're fairly small heirlooms (Old German) with a nice fluted shape. And wow, are there a lot of them on the vines, soon to follow the first couple! Looks like Saturday will bring the first apricot, too. Its color has been developing in parallel with the tomatos. There is a first blush on the plums. Unfortunately, now that they are large and coloring up, I have an accurate count of how many are on the tree this year: seven. I tell you, this is SUCH a weird year...
