The First Tomato of the New Year
I am not claiming a Christmas miracle as I could not deal with the line of believers snaking through my house. This plant was in a pot from the beginning of it's germination as I can not trust the soil around my house. It was just poking along until I brought it in and gave it some fertilizer from the vermiculture bin in the cellar. Amazing things started to happen. As the tomato got heavier I had to place it on the spinning wheel hub to support it's heft. Three cheers for the worms!
My first introduction to the word. "Craftivist" was a YouTube video by Casey Jenkins,
which amazed me. I decided to be more visible with my own creativity. i now keep a kit of tools and metal in my car for "public displays of creativity". Sometimes this evolves into a mini lesson. The expression on a person's face when they look for the first time at something they created drives me to continue being more public. When I was younger i felt my creativity was a burden. Now I feel it is the best gift.
