First of Millions

Photo of my first Sweet Millions tomato growing in what is normally a sunny, sunny window. Alas, another day of gloom, wind, mist and 50 degree temperatures. I don't know how you folks in the cold and/or dark winter worlds handle these conditions. I am a sunshine, 100 degree girl all the way.

It's 38 degrees outside (at 8:15 a.m.)!!! Brrrrr, I'm going to find some thicker socks.

Your photo isn't showing for me but I can totally relate to the "doom and gloom" feeling. Here in Missouri today we've already had ice and snow followed by more rain and cold dreary skies :( I miss warm sunshine and bright pretty flowers.

Fixed the photo glitch - apparently Picassa is the problem this morning. And Mercury Retrograde...

Honey, it was 24 degrees this morning when I left for the bus stop.

I like to act tough about it, but really I'm weeping on the inside.

Greetings from Minneapolis. :-)

I like your tomatoe photo. I have a tomatoe plant in the greenhouse that looks just about the same. I can't believe it actually has a couple of little tomatoes. Can't imagine they will actually mature to real fruit. You had a photo glitch too???

Ah, Pearl, the husband's family is all in your part of the world - been watching how cold it is in your world this winter. Just letting you know, some days this winter it was actually warmer in Minneapolis than it was here in Texas. Smiling weather will be coming soon.

Creekside - got the photo to work but had to upload directly to blogger from my computer. Picassa seems to be the problem.

Oh, how nice to see a tomato bloom! I know how you feel, this cold weather is even grating on my nerves, and I'm a Wisconsinite by choice. I have to admit to something, though, I whine like a baby when the temperatures get into the 90's and 100 degrees would send me wailing to curl up next to the AC. I am such a wimp in hot weather, I just melt like a cheap wax candle.

Awesome! .... I'm in desperate need of "green" and sunshine.

Karen, I have seen the photos of you and your determination behind the snowblower - I can't imagine you melting under any condition.

Shyrlene - 2 days of that damp winter weather and now we are into the 90's again. We may be working on the color brown before too long.
