Protecting plants from the sun

Plants get burnt due to the extreme temperatures of this heat wave. They die of exposure. So I had to improvise a shade to protect them. 

Some of them couldn't make it, it was too late for them.

First Tres cantos tomato of the season

The first one is the best one (not necessarily)

This is the first tomato of the tres cantos variety I picked up this season. It is an excellent variety. The colour is not red but orange. It is a beautiful piece. And may I add, delicious.

Four-leaf clover

My cousin has a special gift. She can find four-leaf clovers among millions of plants. It is more than good eyeshight. It is a real gift. She's always had it as far as I remember. She found one for everyone of us in less than five minutes. Ain't that really extraordinary?

Spring going back to normal

Low temperatures seem to have gone away and the weather now is close to normal (It's raining now, but that is how it is supposed to be in April)

The frost killed my tomato plants but I planted some new ones yesterday and they look good.

Besides, since I cannot do anything in the garden I've spent some time in the garage tuning my lawnmower.

Cold Spring

Spring just began but the weather seems to be a bit stubborn. We reached -3C last night and the plants and the trees froze. Too bad.
