So. Did you hear about the state that Summer forgot? Yeah, that's us. Not even the EASTERN half has had enough good weather to ripen their tomatoes. Everyone who was on top of things and got their basil in the ground on time had to watch it rot away. Tomatoes didn't go in the ground till at least July.
But hey! Let's take a look and see what's going on in the front yard!
My tomato patch- sunny and warm, they like it! Some are staked with cages, some are simply enjoying their space.
Yellow pear tomato
Roma (these are delicious and tart- they'll be great for sauce!)
Not-a-bush-bean? Do bush beans produce tendrils, if given the chance to climb a pole?
Hello tomatillo. Where did you come from? There must have been seeds from last years patch in the dirt we threw down here- it looked like a weed when we left on vacation, and I came back to a 2-foot-tall plant a week later! I wonder if we'll get any fruit before the frosts come in October? August seems awfully late to start from a seed like this :) I know if there IS any fruit, I can pull the whole plant out and let the fruit ripen on the bush in my garage.
I have beans cooking on the stove, and we need to throw sweaters in the car "just in case" when we leave the house. I feel like we totally missed summer! I'm grateful for the nice days we've had though- they've been gorgeous :)
