Bundles of sunshine

Tomatoes: little bundles of sunshine.

Okra plants (below) make a fairy forest of tiny trees straight out of a Grant Wood painting. My husband's grandmother used to say that if you go out in the light of the full moon, stretch your arm as high as it can go, and drop the seeds from on high, then the okra plants will grow as high as your hand. I'm sure that's an old wives' tale, but our okra plants are all over three feet tall and getting taller.
