Yesterday I picked my first ripe tomatoes and they tasted so sweet! They are small cherry tomatoes of the only sort I kept from last year. It's the plant that sprouted last and now is the tallest of all.
Some days ago I was at the pottery studio and due to the tiring hot weather got nothing else done than adding some newly purchased colours of glass to a textured plate which should be fired a third time.
I tried out pastel pink, purple, and green, and a dark pink for the first time along with some blues I tested earlier and which melt to very nice shades of bright blue. Pinks and reds are delicate glass colours that easily burn. I hope they don't. That's the excitement of working with glass.
