Really. That's its cultivar name. It is nearer black in person than the camera lets on. And we're having a heat wave (almost a tropical heat wave!) — I do't think I'm delusional in thinking the tomatoes are actually changing colour! For once the droplets on a plant aren't from rain — I've had to use the hose!
I managed to save the week's yardage totals by getting a short pond swim in yesterday morning and a longer pool swim in later in the afternoon. Gee, you'd think I might be training for something! The annual total is now sitting at over 425,000 metres, with two weeks left. Technosport's home pool is now closed, so the only practices we have scheduled until mid-September are out at Meech Lake. O'Brien Beach is now closed due to a blue-green algae bloom, so we're looping it up over at Blanchet. For those of you following along at home, Blanchet is the beach pictured in my 4K report.
