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
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."
