Morning glory and tomato update.
Lens: 18-250 Pentax Camera: K5 ISO: 200 
Posted By: charliezap, 07-27-2013, 03:07 PM

Everything is growing fast and furious from my last "yard" photos.The Morning Glories have breeched the deck and the tomatoes are taking off.The cherry tomatoes on the bottom rows of the plants are splitting but I think it's caused by the past 2 weeks of upper 90's and very humid weather.The weather now is reasonable and hopefully the future "ripens" will be ok.Every year is certainly different with plants.Must be the "chaos" factor in play here.--charliezap

For sure, has to be the "butterfly effect"

For those that are puzzled by this: Butterfly effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maybe, but I blame everything on the damn squirrels, and would bet money I am right!

Lovely yard Charlie! Looks like you have had plenty of rain. The only problem I have with your colorful shot is the memory I have stored of your place in deep snow drifts......it's hard for me to get that out of my heat seeking mind!

Best Regards!

Looks great Charlie, normally this time of our grass slows down considerably, looks like you are having the same problem of having to mow grass all the time. LOL

Thanks--I have to get out and do the yard at least once a week.It's nice when I'm finished and a red solo cup or two makes it look better.--charliezap

As it looks now Bob the sweet 100's cherry tomatoes may be iffy with all the heat but the Big Boys are doing fine. They are still green but there is no splitting like the smaller ones have been doing.--charliezap

Thanks Tom.After 4 days it starts to look like a mowing may be needed.I usually wait a week.I don't mind since it seems like a good exercise.--charliezap

Beautiful yard Charlie. Tomatoes can be a challenge in, let's see, hot, dry, wet, humid, cold, weather. Other then that they are easy to grow. Here we always worry about rain! JIM

I love puttering around outside. The tomatoes seem to be growing normally now that the extreme real hot weather has given way to pleasant normal (80's).--charliezap
