Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (and so it begins…)

These are, of course, Better Boy Tomatoes getting ready to bear fruit. There are some tough times coming up this week, with temps threatening to freeze everything. Maybe I’ll provide them some cover from incoming frosty precipitation. But then it looks like summery temps after that.

They set a good example for those called to bear much fruit, fruit that will last, souls for eternal life. But we’re all pretty fragile, and need cover at times – you know, us helping each other – but then the grace of our Lord makes us strong in Himself to bear fruit, fruit that will last.

    Is that a worm I see looking right out at me ? eyes glowing? I do see the blossom of beauty for Mary Immaculate. May I also bear good fruit .

    Father, the following link is to a video that shows the different methods used by a backyard gardener in America to protect his tomatoes from early frost. He tried different things – some didn’t work or didn’t work as well as hoped but covering each plant with a bucket proved 100% effective.
    Hoping you have a bumper harvest there come summer.
