Cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen up, soon I'll have more than I can possibly eat. It also looks like one cucumber is ready to go. Those'll be out of hand as well.

Anyone else have a garden this year?

Good for, you, Buddy....In Upstate NY (Lake Ontario Region) I haven't even been able to mow my lawn, other than the high ground. Temps went to the 70's (77) today, I think for the 2nd or 3rd time of 2019. Friggin' depressing!!!! Enjoy the fruits of your labor!

We do wild Florida Everglades tomatoes down here. They are small like cherry tomatoes. Most traditional tomato varieties don’t take the heat and sandy soil too well, but these little native ones grow like weeds and are pretty tasty.

Interesting.

I'm about a 1/4 mile from a semi-brackish slough, and our water table is only 6-7 feet. You can grow just about anything with little effort here.

Still cold in michigan, and it has been raining for two months straight.

I thought global warming was causing a drought.....

Thank you! Hope this year is better than last, rain killed my garden last year, so far it's starting out wet here again. :smt076

We planted some tomato plants, jalapenos and one cucumber plant back in April, I'll see if I can get some pics up in a bit.

My mammoth jalapeno plants are starting to produce a few peppers and the tomato plants ( better bush determinant variety ) got a few small ones that should be ready in a couple weeks.

Yesterday I made my first batch of salsa with my tomatoes and jalapeno peppers, it's very picante ( spicy )!

There's nothing like some fresh homemade salsa, so good!

Cherokee Purple came in first, then the cherry's, and Black Krim.
Just this week the Big Stripy just started to give up some huge fruits. Got two more varieties of tomatoes going that have not started to ripen yet - same for a huge donator that popped up on the edge of the compost pile. That pile is now covered with a watermelon patch.


Tomato soup is a good way to get through them things.
