Quanah's experiment notes
The weather today is thunder stormy. Today is July 12th, 2007, Thursday. Today we finished our tomato project. Last Thursday we took votes to see which tomato would ripen first. There were choices of: the window, the window in a brown bag, open on the table, clear bag by the window, covered in a black container on the bookshelf, in a cup of water in the bathroom, in the dark closet open in a box, inside a clear bag which was inside a paper bag in the dark closet. Those were the choices we voted on. I am not going to tell you what the voes were because it will take up all the room on the blog. But the one on the bookshelf that no one voted for ripened first. Our hypothesis was that it ripened first because it was in a black container and black attracts heat. I think a lot of heat got in and not a lot of heat could get out. Stay tuned for more experiments with ripening tomatoes!
