Many thanks to all who read and enjoyed yesterday’s post on April Fool’s Day about the progress of my tomato seedlings. Some of you got it right away, some of you wanted it to be true but knew it couldn’t be, and others decided perhaps it was true.
But some of you who have been reading my blog for several years, knew to watch out on April 1st for a “tall tale”. This was my fifth April Fool’s Day to post something that was a made up, yet slightly believable, story.
The only part of the story that is true is the list of tomato varieties I’m growing, minus of course the “super tomato”, Rielooflirpa, which is April Fool spelled backwards with an “rie” on the front of it to make it look like one of those German tomato varieties.
But believe you me, as we say here in Indiana, if such a tomato ever did show up here in my house… well, who would ever believe me if I posted about it on April 1st? April 2nd… maybe.
So thank you to all who read and commented, or read and laughed, or read and wondered, for allowing me to have my fun for a day.
If you are interested in other tall tales told on a certain spring day every year, you can follow the links below to see what else I’ve written…
And now, no fooling, we are experiencing record high temperatures, so it is time to get busy in the garden and prepare for the giant Easter egg hunt this coming Sunday!
