shade of pink

This is the exciting moment...our roma are finally changing least 3 of them out of...maybe a 100.

We did a massive trimming a couple weeks ago in order to re-direct the plant energy into the existing fruits. All the roma are still in bright green and there is no sign of colour change. The weather was rainy and chilly over the past few weeks and hence some drastic actions needed to be done. Starting yesterday, the sun came back and the nice weather is supposed to stay with us for the rest of the week. This is fantastic news for the tomato!

I hanged out with Shino in the afternoon. She was so happy to be out there. Rubbing herself against the ground cover is her favorite. However, she is shy from the camera. So taking picture of her requires swift action.

Most of the sungold are still green. On average, there are only a few turn orange each day. Climate change definitely has a toll on the veggie.

Hang in there! If necessary, throw up some covers if frost comes. Or hang them upside down from the roots in the garage and harvest all winter long. There are options I read. Looking good otherwise!
