Again with the Tomato Harvesting

            Last week’s Advance article featured harvesting your garden vegtables, and I would hate to find out that some of you have tomatoes dying on the vine because you don’t have within eye site a traffic light. Let me give you another surefire method of harvesting these orbs of tasty goodness.
             To do the job properly you will need a cardboard box (roughly 2’x2’x18” high), a stick, 100’feet of string, and some sunflower seeds. Your quest, your mission, the male Cardinal.

            Position the stick so it holds up the box in a way that causes the box to be angled off the ground. Place the seeds under this angled box, with a few outside the box for visibility. Attach the string to the stick, unwind it to a hidden location, and wait for the cardinals.

            Once the bird is secured pick only the tomatoes that match his color. If you find that your tomatoes are rather hard and tasteless it is very possible you’ve caught the female of the species.
