When we got home from church today I had just a little time before I had something to do with my daughter. And so I got my 3 new tomato plants planted.
After I finished I looked at my line of "pots" and here's what came to mind: "If the container for your tomato plant is an empty cat litter bucket....you might be a redneck." I thought for a bit about spray painting them - and still might - but what I finally decided is that this is such a great example of repurposing. We have a lot of these buckets and now they will get a 2nd life.
I drilled 4 holes in the bottom of each bucket and put a layer of rocks in the bottom, then filled the buckets with soil and a tomato plant. Each of the three plants are a different variety, so this is the year of tomato plant experimentation.
While I was taking pictures of the 3 new plants the original tomato plant starting whining that it wanted a picture as well. So I show you the Topsy Turvy tomato plant, now 5 weeks old. It is truly amazing to watch how fast this plant is growing.
Maurice Durufle's Requiem: One of Lynne's closest friends, and her mom, are in the Musical Feast Choral Society here in town. They had a performance late this afternoon and Lynne' and I went to see it. Truly it was unbelievable and reminded me of an old world European style of singing. And I say that with full realization that I have no knowledge whatsoever of musical styles. But the songs were done in Latin and one of the songs, Alleluia, honestly reminded me of angels. I even went so far as to close my eyes during part of the song and the voices were so phenomenal - what a blessing. The performance was held in a local church that has an amazing organ to accompany them. So glad I was able to go.
