Summer time, when the living is easy.

Yes here in the growing city of Nashville,TN.  It is high summer.  The last three days we have had rain or thunder storms.  Visually very stimulating.  Sometimes I go out under my carport and just watch the lightening and listen to the thunder.  We had a really intense one yesterday.  The wind was blowing the trees around and the rain was pounding on my roof top.  After it subsided I went out to check on my trees and my garden.  The trees were fine, the garden had been blown over.  My Christmas Lima vines which I have on trellises had blown over.  So I had to get in the mud and set them back up.  Then I noticed some of my tomato plants had blown over.  I use what is called rabbit fencing that I have cut up into round sections that go around the plants and the plants grow into them.  It had blow over at least 5 of them.  I set them back up and used some metal sticks to weave through the fencing and stick into the ground.  To anchor them to the ground. So that I hope this doesn't happen again.  While setting the plants right I found some ripe tomatoes on the underside of the plants that I hadn't even seen.  So I got those out and later in the day.  I stewed them, and froze them.  My first tomato freeze of the summer.  

This year I did something different for the garden and found an organic fertilizer for tomatoes.  When planted it really has made a difference. I think having all this rain has helped but I had some very large tomatoes this year.  I got my first Black eyed peas today as well.  The calypso beans are almost ready to pick too.  So the garden is doing well for June.

Bet you thought I would be writing about photography.  It is after all what this website is about.  This digital world we live in has really down played the meaning of photography.  Not sure what the future holds for us all.  Especially us photographers.  I look at the web and what I see most is streaming.  They do use still images but streaming is where it is happening.  So am I doing video work?  No have no idea how to do it.  I love the still image and think it is very important to have.  How much longer will I attempt to make a living at this?  I don't know.  I just don't know.
