Now that Summer is officially here and has brought with her consistently high 70’s daytime temps and low 60’s nighttime temps, my veggies (and I) are thanking her. The tomatoes are starting to really set fruit, whereas for the past month the flowers were just falling off before swelling into fruit. The Moon and Stars Watermelon is starting to actually look like a vine instead of a little seedling. The peaches on the no-name peach tree are nearing full ripeness. Cucumbers are happily weighing down my trellis. Baby pumpkins are peeking their little selves out of the vines and all is right with the world. Or at least in my garden, anyway.
Cherokee Purple Heirloom Tomato on it’s way to ripening.
The Moon and Stars Heirloom watermelon has started to take off in recent days.
Peaches giving a rosy “Hello! Here I am!”
This Cherokee Purple Heirloom tomato is growing in a grow bag! This is my healthiest tomato plant and has set more fruit than any other Cherokee Purples around the garden. GO Grow Bags!
Case in point.
And more from the same grow bag tomato plant.
Lemon Cukes are ready for munching!
And I’ll leave you with a photo of my most recent harvest. Long Live Homegrown!
