I planted cilantro – in shifts, so we’d always have some. And then, as the cilantro went to seed, I replanted it. I kept replanting it. The new planting didn’t come up and didn’t come up. Eventually, the cilantro started growing again. But wait – something else came up, too.
There seems to be a guerrilla gardener in the neighborhood, and I suspect he or she is very sneaky and very furry.
Meanwhile, I started rescuing tomatoes a little early, as soon as they start turning orange. Another (or the same) furry critter likes to grab the low-hanging tomatoes. This critter is picky, however. He or she doesn’t pick the green ones, but aims for those that are turning color. I thought most animals were colorblind?! But anyway, the tomatoes are ripening well in the sunshine from the window.
Readers, what do you think? Is the same sneaky creature responsible for both?
After you answer, take a trip over to Daphne’s Dandelions for more Harvest Monday posts.
