Of all the days to be stuck at work. I don't think anyone could ever call me a lazy federal government worker, but I worked 12.5 hours straight today, no lunch. I'm dead.

ETA - Also hoping that at least one of your tutors is a lavender!
BF didn't have to work until 3 so he was sending me pictures. I had two tutors out earlier and a fully zipped turkey (the pipped one from this AM). Got home about 20 minutes ago and the turkey was still just zipped, so I intervened. Glad I did, it was very dried and stuck. It's out now and lurching around a bit like a frankenstein monster, but it's alive. It tried to drown itself in the first 20 seconds of being in the brooder, so I'll try to keep an eye on it. No other pips. I did get the humidity up a bit more with a damp towel so hopefully that'll help.

I would like to try some of yours and to share some of mine. Anyone willing to consider a "Tomato Swap?" Hey, we already know how to pack them to ship!
I planted some in August last year. The plants did well and I had a bunch of late fruit. The tomatoes never got too big (in the South, we pride ourselves on big tomatoes, one slice should cover the bread for a tomato sandwich) but that didn't bother me. What I found interesting, was that they didn't taste as good. They were closer to store bought than homegrown and I wondered if the cooler temps were the reason. We have hot weather into October, (sometimes November!) but it cools off at night starting in September. Hummmmmmm........
I would be down for that. I think we have tasty tomatoes here, but anything is better than store bought. Also anything is better than the nasty stuff that we have shipped to us most of the winter. I'm trying to grow heritage mortgage lifters this year (the real big ones) but I was smart and planted some short season ones, too.

When you said you were going to pretty it up, I though you meant you'd dust off the cobwebs! You have a lovely sense of design. Thanks so much!
That looks great!
