Die erste Tomate 2012 ist reif!

Drei Wochen später als im letzten Jahr 2011 ist endlich die erste Tomate rot geworden. Wie auf dem Bild zu sehen ist es die einzige weit und breit.

Tomaten mögen nasse Füße und einen heißen Kopf. Die nassen Füße sind durch fleißiges Gießen oder Bewässern leicht zu erreichen, aber beim heißen Kopf sind wir auf das Wetter angewiesen, und das war in diesem Juli alles andere als heiß.

 


The first tomato turned red!

Three weeks later than in 2011 the first tomato finally turned red. As you can see in the photo this is the only red tomato  far and wide.

Tomatoes like wet feet and a hot top. You can care for wet feet simply by watering the plants. Hot tops depend on the weather conditions, and these haven't been hot at all in July 2012.

That reminds me of an old joke I found in an English magazine.

 

Red Tomatoes

 A beautiful woman loved growing tomatoes, but couldn't seem to get her tomatoes to turn red. One day, she came upon her gentleman neighbor who had the most beautiful garden full of huge red tomatoes.
The woman asked the gentleman, "What do you do to get your tomatoes so red?"
The neighbor responded, "Let me tell you a secret. It sounds unbelievable, but it works. Once a week in a warm summer night I stand in front of my tomato garden naked. My tomatoes turn red from blushing so much."
Well, the woman was not convinced, but she decided to try doing the same thing to her tomato garden to see if it would work. So in a warm summer night she walked through her garden in the nude hoping for the best.
The next day the gentleman was passing by and asked the woman, "By the way, how did you make out? Did your tomatoes turn red?"
"No", she replied, "my tomatoes are still green, but my cucumbers are two inches longer."
