Here are some problems with the oxblood tomatoes.
maybe it was not a good idea to try this tomato variety without having lots of tomato experiences.
I grew 4 different tomato varieties this year and no problems at all, except the oxblood.
They are doing well, but the leaves on top began to wither....ok let´s wait and see... my mantra regarding gardening problems...
And now to some beads I got.
They look wonderful and I´m always in search of silver glass beads!
unfortunately they often are not abrasion proof or light resistant.
But these are looking great and first tests are promisingly, so I will make some stress tests
like leaving them on a window sill outside in the sun, for months...and other cruelties..
Of course it can be advisable if beads are eminently interesting, to use more sensitive ones, but I have to know it for giving care instructions.
Crafting a sphere and wearing it for some time on a necklace is also a good testing opportunity.
By the way, one of the beads that passed through a 100% successful stress test are these old red beads above!
after some time I will come back with the results for the silver charlottes.
