I really want tomatoes a.s.a.p. so I am hoping that cheating a little by growing an advanced seedling on the verandah will have us in tomotoes sooner rather than later. The spot is pretty much perfect, sheltered, sunny and right near my bedroom.
Things are looking promising, there are tiny flower buds forming already so hopefully some lovely, ripe and tasty Wapsipinicon Peach tomatoes will be on the kitchen bench soon. I grew this variety last year and it was great. Very sweet and soft even if a little fuzzy on the skin. It adds to its charm.
One place you can't trick, cajole or rush nature is in the hatching stakes. I noticed some peeping this morning and a little patience on my part rewarded me with the first glimpse of the newest residents on the farm. Baby turkeys. Cute for now but not for long. Mother turkey is still sitting on the eggs so hopefully there will be some more chicks tomorrow.
