Wednesday's batch for what it is worth........

My chokecherry tree took a hit a few days ago with all the wind and rain.  It was a v shaped tree and now has one straight trunk. 

The city told me to get some things trimmed and I have not as of yet.  I won't have to trim these though as they came down all by themselves.

I was deciced to run a fence wire to the edge of my tomato rows and tie them up to the fence.  It was easier to go ahead and use the tomato cages.  I have so few tomatoes this year that I can stake them with two metal post per plant so the should be secure.

Because I had decided to run them next to a fence row, I planted them too close to each other.  I think if I can get them staked well because of the weight that they get on the branches, I should be able to have the same effect.  The two of us will not use this many tomatoes but we like to share them with the neighbors.  I had leftover seed of Early Girl and of Roma so that is what we have in the garden now.

I will retake the photo of the tool with another normal sized item to show you what the actual size of it is.  I too thought it looked like a rug beater  head but when you see how small it is you will change your mind.

Thanks for stopping by.........

That tool has the look of something the doctor might have taken from his bag in times gone by - seconds before one run out of the door in fear.

Sorry about your tree. I hope our tomatoes do better than last year, right now they are doing great but time will tell.
I was going to say a rug beater but now I don't know!
Have a good day.

Oh, what a shame, wind is such an enemy of old trees...
Tomatoes are looking healthy, oh, and there's nothing like that first ripe one of the season !
Thanks for sharing.
It's hotter than blue blazes here in Tennessee ;)

It looks like a little egg beater/frother to me, but who knows? ha
