Hairs on stems and leaves of tomatoes are called trichomes. Trichomes do reflect excessive light and heat, also slowing down evapotranspiration. Also trichomes are a deterrent to crawling insects. A covering of trichomes is called indumentum. In this photo, from my garden, you can notice a specific variety of tomato and its furry fruit enjoying the sun. 🌞

Always nice to learn completely new things from completely new unknown fields👌. Thanks for sharing and very nice picture of your tomatoe in your garden. Very probably cultivating tomatoes in once garden relaxes/is a form of meditation?

The movie about the plants to be recommended is definitely “Adaptation” directed by Spike Jones. Incredible cinematographical work about the struggle to adapt a book- "The Orchid Thief”- a story of Laroche, who clones rare orchids and sells them to collectors.

The secrets from daily life of tomatoes might surprise both a gardener and a vegetarian. Intresting fact to learn is that tomatoes are carnivorous plants Research showed that they capture and kill small insects with sticky hairs on their stems and then absorb nutrients through their roots when the animals decay and fall to the ground. It is thought that the technique was developed in the wild in order to supplement the nutrients in poor quality soil – but quality soil – but even domestic varieties grown in your vegetable patch retain the ability. So is exciting to learn and the other fact from more receint study - they are not just serial insect killers- tomatoes make the herbivorous catterpillars eat each other-cannibalize themselves. 🍅🐛🌱

Seasons are shifting: winters are shorter, spring is earlier, summers are longer and fall arrives later. Moreover, the intermediary seasons as f.e. sprinter or sprummer might become regular phenomena. Disruptions in the timing of these events makes a variety of impacts on ecosystems. Environmental changes cause many trees and flowers to bloom earlier than typical, an earlier spring might lead to longer growing seasons. Unusually warm weather in late winter can create a “false spring” that triggers the new growth of plants to begin too early, leaving them vulnerable to any subsequent frosts. Gardens as ecosystems are impacted as well. When buying a plant from a nursery its important to know that every plant is marked with a number indicating its hardiness zone. A hardiness zone is a geographic area defined to encompass a certain range of climatic conditions relevant to plant growth and survival. Because of warmer global temperatures planting zones are shifting further north. Lithuania is in zones 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b, 7a and 7b. Analyzing the plants map leads into discoveries like f. e. territories of zone 7 include parts of Lithuania as well as part of France, meaning that the same plants can grow in both countries. https://www.plantmaps.com/interactive-lithuania-plant-hardiness-zone-map-celsius.php
