well things have finally taken off here now that the rain has tapered and it's hot hOT HOT! tomatoes love heat & humidity. and you can see that mine have grown a ton! the heirloom varieties are indeterminate which means they just keep growing & growing up! they must be almost 6 feet tall! the romas are a bit more bushy-like and so far have the most green fruit. no fruit yet on the striped german tomato or any of the peppers (boooooooooooooo) but the ground cherry tomatillo is huge with tons of fruit and i have some purple string beans too! did i mention i got some cukes too? july 4th weekend i bought a six pack for $1.25 and figured i'd toss them in the front yard by the fence and see what happens. we'll be lucky if we get any fruit before the frost but hey it was only $1.25. puppy seems pleased with the garden's progress. fingers crossed the warm summer weather continues and things keep growing!
