Anticipation. . . . . . . . .

My tomato flowers are really quite pretty - and hopefully will provide us with 
some tasty fruit in the next couple of months.

We have a small tomato plot this year - plus one red bell pepper plant and a few 
butternut squash tucked in (seeds from last Autumn's squash). 
As we have travels which will take us away we can't plant much in case there's no rain.  

Today I'm tying up the tomatoes which are now so tall. I'm also fertilizing before
  regular watering. Non-stop garden chores at this time of year.
Tonight's salad will be welcome - and will include these scallions I grew alongside
 chives in a big pot - as the temperature reaches 90F yet again.

Sunscreen, sun hats and water required!


  1. to your blog! I want to love tomatoes, but they give me eczema, so I have to be careful of when I partake. But congrats on your plant!!

    1. A very warm welcome Silver Willow - I love when I get a new Follower, especially these days when there are so many fab blogs out there and many of we 'original oldies' have been kicked to the corner! I've visited you to take a look at life in California and will be back to comment soon, promise!
      Sorry you are unable to enjoy a sun-warmed, juicy, fresh-picked tomato - meanwhile do enjoy other good things from the summertime harvest.

      Mary -

  2. Everything is looking good Mary! We have had some small cherry tomatoes already, but the Better Boy and Cherokee Purple heirloom tomatoes will probably start ripening around the end of July.

  3. I love your new Blog Header photo! :) Your tomato plants are SO TALL....mine are about a foot high at this point maybe. I pruned the little shoots this morning so I hope they thrive more now! Salads are so anticipated in this household and I can't get enough of them! I have twelve pots plus an entire raised bed of different lettuces growing...I think they will all blossom at the same time then I'll have lettuce growing out of my ears! :)


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
