Believe it or not, I still have tomatoes on the vine. Someday soon, before the first frost, I'm going to have to go out and pick them, whether they are ripe or not. Right now though, in my mind, it's still midsummer and I'm enjoying every minute of it. I'm getting almost a basket full everyday, of some the best tasting tomatoes of the year! Tomato sandwiches everyday!
So here is my patch of tomatoes. They don't look so good right now from afar. It's when I walk into an opening and really start looking at how many tomatoes are on some of the vines, that I'm amazed. Every plant seems to have close to 10 tomatoes or more.
Then, there is this one:
I was just looking at it and all of a sudden it just started leaning over from all the weight. When it came to a stop, I counted 20 tomatoes on this one tomato plant. Whew!
I'm glad I started using the electric toothbrush on the blooms. That really made the difference this year.
Mustard greens are ready to be picked again. We've already had a couple of messes. I'll be canning soon.
We are also pushing the beans to the limit. My hope is that I might be canning these by Monday or Tuesday. We love a bean in them, so to us they are just not ready yet.
I'm picking bouquets of Zinnia's every couple of days. They are just so beautiful!
This year has made me think maybe we could stretch this season out just a little longer than we have before. It's something to think about. We've had our trials but I'm thankful that we are getting so many vegetables from our garden.
How's your garden growing?
