So we’ve had another week of cool wet weather and the tomatoes that I planted ten days ago appear to have survived albeit with damage due to the chill.

There is some hope.  The crowns of all the tomato plants appear to have more viable leaves.  So I’m thinking they will pull through.

Meanwhile, we’ve been watching a pair of Doves struggle to hatch their babies in the nest they made in our eaves.  they found a spot under the porch overhang but it’s been so wet it’s hard to believe the nest is dry. However the two of them soldier on and coo to us as we drink our morning coffee.
