i experienced a very powerful thunder storm, crouched literally under a tomato hedge, just down the row from this spot. when i started, the sky was barely gray and the tomatoes needed pruning. i crawled down the aisle pulling leaves from the bottom and suddenly a black tidal-wave cloud crashed over the field, hovering just above the tree line. from under the tomatoes i watched it turn into lightening. and there my farmer found me, chuckling to himself as he said “okay let’s bring it in”.
