Maybe just a joyful squeak, as the scenery along the narrower, winding roads became more breathtaking!๐Ÿ™‚

It's kind of like how Colorado normally gets Saturday Night Live on a 2 hour tape delay from New York, & California 3 hours - but those in Mountain Standard Time will reverse that, & change to Autumn at 7:54 pm, Pacific Standard Time at 6:54 pm. Just minutes away!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ

We're almost there, Autumn just a little over an hour away here in the Midwest US - at 8:54 pm, CST, 9/22 - while UK changes simultaneously at 2:54 am, BST, on 9/23. So an interesting reversal of UK always being in the future, here - we change 1st, as far as the calendar goes!๐Ÿ˜€

Tomato 'Black Krim' an all time fave, if there's heat & drought grows even better. 'Green Zebra' delicious, but succumbs to blight - right as fruit are beginning to peak, plants turn black & die. Stopped growing it many years ago - showing a rescue crop, note necrotic calyces.

Agree, I've tried several different indigo colored tomatoes at trials in a range of maturities, just to make sure I wasn't missing something wonderful - and I wasn't.๐Ÿ˜„ Haven't found one yet that didn't taste like Tomato foliage smells.๐Ÿคฃ

Killdeer at the prairie dog town, Badlands, ND. Look at that muddy beak from digging for insects in the churned-up dirt from the prairie dog's digging.

Cloudsailor is correct - same species - though in US most often the sterile triploid form, whereas Japan & China have more genetic diversity in their populations, triploid plus normally fertile diploids which can set seed. Link technical but interesting.
