Friday PhotoEssay – June 27th

We are still officially in drought, but in the garden, I would say we have had plenty of rain for the time being.

That said, everything is so lush and it is nice to not have to water all the time to keep things moist. It is starting to look like a jungle!

Look at that! We have a ripe tomato! This is on the ‘Silvery Fir Tree’ plant that was listed as 54 days to maturity. I would call it a good, solid 3-4 oz. tomato. I’ll let you know on the flavor! Today is 52 days from when we transplanted, so we are right on target. The ‘Northern Lights’ that was also listed as 55 days is nowhere near ready. I’m not surprised, but a little disappointed.

Look at that cluster of tomatoes! That is a cluster of ‘Northern Lights’ and while they are looking great, they are clearly nowhere near ripe.

This is one of the cayenne pepper plants in the MG Faves garden. Despite the cooler weather, we have some pretty nice peppers coming on.

The whole herb and pollinator garden is looking good, but this end is looking pretty spectacular for this time of year!

Have a great weekend!
