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 tomatoes and she's
getting tired of it. So she goes to her neighbor and says,"Your
tomatoes 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. Tomatoes can see in the dark and they'll
be embarrassed and blush. In the morning they'll all be
red, you'll see."
She says Well, what the heck
it can't hurt to try it.
Next day her neighbor asks
how it worked.
"So-so," she answers.
"The tomatoes are still green but the cucumbers are
all four inches longer."
