National Weather Service Seattle: Warm & Dry Friday
CDC: Newsroom Release - Racial and Ethnic Disparities Continue in Pregnancy-Related Deaths
Black, American Indian/Alaska Native women most affected
September 5, 2019 - Black, American Indian, and Alaska Native (AI/AN) women are two to three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women – and this disparity increases with age, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report today in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).
The CDC’s Pregnancy-Related Mortality Surveillance System (PMSS) defines a pregnancy-related death as the death of a woman during pregnancy or within one year of the end of pregnancy from a pregnancy complication; a chain of events initiated by pregnancy; or the aggravation of an unrelated condition by the physiologic effects of pregnancy.

WSU Lewis County Master Gardeners shared a post: How to Ripen Green Tomatoes
HOW TO RIPEN GREEN TOMATOES
Tips for Ripening on the Vine
1. When your tomatoes are nearly at full size, cut back on watering.
2. Pick your tiny tomatoes. They won't have time to ripen, and they divert the plant's energy into their growth rather than ripening the larger fruit.
3. Pick excess fruit. Pick any mature green tomatoes now. They will ripen indoors. This will allow the plant to put all of its energy into ripening your remaining large green fruit.
4. Prune lightly. Don't remove too many leaves, as they provide energy for the ripening process. However, you can remove some of the lower leaves, which again allows the plant's energy to go toward fruit ripening.
5. Pinch off any flowers. By early September, flowers will not have time to become fruit and adequately ripen before the first frost. You don't want your plants to waste their energy growing tiny tomatoes that will not have time to ripen.
If you're finding these tips to be helpful, check back tomorrow for more of them!
