Although summer is still some time away and your tomatoes have not even gone into the ground yet, I thought everyone would enjoy a good laugh. Happy holidays to all!
A woman’s vegetable garden is growing like mad, but the darn tomatoes won’t ripen. There’s a limit to the number of uses for green tomatoes and she’s getting pretty tired of it.
So she walks over to her neighbor’s and asks, “Your tomatoes are always red, while mine are always green. How do you do it?”
Her neighbor says, “Well, this may sound absurd, but here’s what you do. After dark, go out into your garden and take off all your clothes. When the tomatoes see you they’ll get embarrassed and blush. Tomorrow they’ll all be red, you’ll see.”
Well, what the heck, she figures. So she does it.
The next day her neighbor asks her how it went.
“So-so,” she said, “The tomatoes are still green, but the cucumbers are all 4 inches longer.”
