We had a couple nice days over the weekend and got a few tings done around the place. On Monday I had a doctor appointment out of town. Rodger took off work to go with me. Long story short, I am diagnosed with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. One meds and hope to heck they work well. It rained on us most of the day out of town and we did some shopping around for a few things we needed here on the farm so it was something positive accomplished. From hearing some folks talk it had snowed really hard in the next large town north west of where we were and we got on home to have just rain. Then after dark it started to snow here, big ole flakes, an covered quickly. This morning it had mostly melted off even tho the temps were in the mid 20's. This time of year I don't mind the snow we get cause you can be pretty sure it wont last the next day. But it has been cold today so I did not go out there in it messing around.
I decided to have tacos for supper tonight and am convinced ya never get too old to see something new. Well as I was slicing up a store bought tomato I did see something I have never seen in my life. A tomato that had seeds on the inside that had sprouted. Never in my life have I seen this in normal garden tomatoes.
On the second photo you can see the lil sprout that I took out of the tomato when I sliced it. The dang thing already has some green to it. But the tomato was whole and looked fine outside. What can promote this kind of sprouting and growth inside a tomato? Kinda makes ya wonder what kind of genetics are involved in our food these days. All I know is this is not normal and I wont eat this kind of food. Not to mention the fact that tomatoes are in the nightshade family and can be toxic if the plant is eaten. So am thinkin again this is not good.
So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
