As the summer goes on, and the sun is just blasting away, I can't help but get more and more excited. Not with the 2 to 3 times I have had to water each day and not with the constant staking and re-staking of my insanely huge tomato plants (see photo below) Farmers...how do you do it?? I can't imagine dealing with hundreds of these beasts. Mine are on their way to being well over 6 feet, and show no sign of stopping.
What I'm excited about is that upon closer inspection, the rewards start showing themselves...much like lots of things in life, I guess.
There's at least 20 green tomatoes of various sizes and plenty more on the way.
That's the first green pepper of size to show it's lovely face, and my mouth is just watering thinking about biting into it's crisp coolness.
