The Tomato Harvest

Ailz was telling me more about her class in positive thinking. They've been teaching her this technique. First you form a clear idea of your desired outcome, then you visualise it happening,  then... "Hang on a minute," I say.  "This is spell-casting for beginners. You could be teaching them. "

She went out to lunch today. In her absence I cleaned the bathroom, clipped the hedge- that'll be the last time it needs doing this year- and harvested the tomatoes. We have four tomato plants in the back yard and between them they have produced two, little, hard, green fruits- one the size of a musket ball, the other much smaller. Bother. My policy of benign neglect- leaving them to be "fed and watered by God's almighty hand"- has failed to deliver the goods.

But it works for dandelions. 

Maybe next year I'll add in a little positive thinking.
