The garden continues to thrive with the bight, warm sunshine that we've been having. Our tomato plants are now officially over 6 feet tall.
We planted four varieties: romas, brandywine, sungold cherry, and siletz. The cherry tomatoes have been ripening first. This is our third year of brandywine and they are getting big and will ripen next month. We planted romas last year and lost many to blossom rot. Papi Chulo plucked a few that were beginning to rot again but I am still hopeful that we'll have a good supply. The siletz are new to us and they are not growing tall but are rather bushy.
We'd had several cucumbers and zucchini to eat this week along with plenty of lettuce. I am planning a chard saffron tart tonight since we need to put a dent in that chard/kale patch.
The peppers have been slow to grow, as always. Our fingers remain crossed but we are beginning to think that the pepper harvest will be small due to placement (not enough sun).
The green bean vines continue to wind their way up and over the arch and have just begun to flower!
Last for today: tomatillos! I picked up two starts from our farmer's market recently and thought I'd add them to the garden. They are getting a little bigger and I am excited to have them in our garden.
That's the update, folks. We are off for one more day of play with dear, dear friends from Funky B's babyhood.
