jazz and conversation, from the foot of Mt Belzoni

Holy cow; the volunteer tomatoes that sprang up from the stuff that the E/R doc (who used to live here) planted last year are going wild. The one plant has about 100 flowers on it already and at least 3 honest-to-gosh tomatoes.

I think it's a cherry tomato plant, not the true Lycopersicon esculentum, but still, pretty impressive.

The lemon tree is producing abundant new foliage, so I think it's happy. The other tomatoes, including the two Brandywine seedlings from Territorial, look good, with the exception of the Mortgage Lifter seedling. I think it's going to die; it was unwholesome on arrival. There are two basil plants so if it dies I will give its spot to one of them, the one that currently is crowded in between the Brandywines.

My Black and Decker string trimmer/edger just came; an hour earlier and I'd've used it. But now I have to run off. I am excited about it. But even if it sucks, it was only $19.99 - free Amazon shipping - so how bad can it be?
