Tomato Watch 2008, Vol II

Still anxiously watching, and things are coming along. We're having a good stretch of hot, sunny days at the moment so that should help.

Yesterday:

Today:

My faithful Cupids are still yielding a small but steady supply.

They pretty much get eaten as soon as they come off the plant.

And I am still getting the odd handful of sugar snap peas.

Today was quite hot and when I went out after work, I noticed my Tomatillo and Cupid Tomatoes were all wilted. Being in pots, they need regular watering during hot weather. As I was watering my Cupids, I noticed that the branches that had grown up against/through the fence were chewed off.

I went for a walk after supper, and when I came back saw the cats at the fence, looking up the hill.

And there were the culprits behind my chewed tomato plants.

Which is one of the reasons we have a fence. If we had no fence, there would be no tomato growing. So a few nibbles are not seeming like that big of a deal.

Beck Diet
Day 14 Task - Plan for Tomorrow.

Because tomorrow I am to officially start dieting. So the exericse of the day is to sit down and write down everything I plan to eat. Then tomorrow, I am to check things off the list as I eat them and write in any other things that I eat.

Most days I do actually plan out what I'm going to eat - I may enter it all into my Daily Plate calorie tracker, or I may just have it in my head, but I usually do plan. Except for Fridays. Fridays are the day when I usually give myself a little break. I still usually have a general idea, but I may plan to buy my lunch, for example, just to give myself a bit of a change. Funny how that timing worked out.

What does work out well though, is that tomorrow is supposed to be my first official weigh-in. Since Fridays were already my weigh-in day, that fits in nicely.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm... must check tomato plants... I don't have your deer-munching problems, but then again I don't have your wonderful scenery either. I suppose it balances out.
Great photos!

Ooh, that little tomato in your hand looked so darned good....could almost taste it!
Love the photos of the deer, too.
Good luck with the diet!
