Gardening After Twilight

Last night, we had thunderstorms. Huge, ear-cracking, thunderstorms. Pulse-pounding, drenching, thunderstorms.

Of course, I had also asked Kevin to pick up some things so I could get stuff planted, and sort of needed to do it last night before the poor plants baked to death in their little teeny tiny seedling planters. Priscilla gave me a dozen heirloom tomatoes, and I didn't want to lose any more than the one that had already been eaten by the local bunny.

So the storm faded just about the time we got the kids tucked into bed. And even though the light was fading, we went outside and put 9 plants into pots, and hammered in the tomato posts. It was actually really cool. Kinda peaceful, and enjoyable. And the tomatoes were SO much happier after they got into nice big pots. I've got two more to do, unless one of them has faded, which it looked like it might be doing.

I can't WAIT to see the tomatoes grow and see what they produce!!
