Ripe Tomatos

(page last updated 14/12/98).

A woman`s garden is growing beautifully but the darn tomatoes won`t ripen. There`s a limit to the number of uses for green tomatos and she`s getting tired of it. So she goes to her neighbor and says, "Your tomatos are ripe, mine are green. What can I do about it?"

Her neighbor replies, "Well, it may sound absurd but here`s what to do. Tonight there`s no moon. After dark go out into your garden and take all your clothes off. Tomatos can see in the dark and they`ll be embarrassed and blush. In the morning they`ll all be red, you`ll see." Well, what the heck? She does it. Next day her neighbor asks how it worked.

"So-so," she answers. "The tomatos are still green but the cucumbers are all four inches longer."
