And these flowers snuck up on me. I shouldn’t be surprised, what with the warm, humid weather we’ve been having. Perfect tomato-growing conditions. But it’s like they popped up between today and yesterday on both of my Early Girl plants as well as the Better Boy. I didn’t notice them last night, but there they were tonight. Big, yellow and beautiful.
I decided not to plant them tonight because there’s more rain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday. Only this time, the forecast calls for downpours and possibly 3-8 inches. So I’ve covered the big raised bed full of soil (hoping that will prevent too much dirt from getting washed out) and I’ll wait until Sunday to plant the tomatoes and everything else I’ve bought.
Who knows, by then maybe the blossoms will be little tomatoes!
