BIOGRAPHY
At first I owned a Kodak Brownie Box, then much later a Nikkormat, then the Nikons F2A, F3, F4, F100...now it's Digital all the way with a D70 and a D80 and all kinds (4) marvellous AF lenses (f.i.: the Nikkor Zoom 80 to 400mm) It's just too bad that my expertice did not grow at the same pace. It's a wonderful hobby. Through it I see fascinating places and meet interesting people. Bert

Unfortunately Mrs. Fulanski speaks no English and, with the exception of "Voila", I speak no Polish. It is therefore possible that some misunderstandings arose in our conversations. Here, however is a final shot of her quick ripening tomatoes.

Here is another shot of this, now harmless cucumber, which Mrs. Prosnevski allowed me to harvest.

This experimental Polish Rock Cucumber sheds its outer skin once a month to enable its growth. This process turns it momentarily blind, at which point it may be harvested safely.

...undaunted, Halina mixed ground Viagara into the fertilizer and "Voila" as the Poles say, there she had a lovely crop of Spaghetski. She intends to plant those in a big way outside of Krakow and Warsaw.

Originally Mrs. Prolanski's attempt to grow spaghetti (she called them 'spaghettski) was a failure due to a serious case of E.D....I heard her mumble something that sounded like: "ukantwinnemallski."

...another succesful attempt to create a "Tomcumber"...under better lighting conditions.

Halina Prokofski decided to cross her tomatoes with an experimental type of cucumber. She called the successful cross breeding "Tomcumber"

I've just returned from Krakov, Poland, where Mrs. Halina Prozinski allowed me to photograph some of the highly interesting vegetables which she grows in her dangerously experimental garden. The following are just some of the exciting images I was able to witness and record: These look like normal tomatoes, don't they? But take the red one from the top and the green one underneath will turn red shortly. An absolutely amazing vegetable.
