Last week, the first tomatoes that set on my plants began to fully ripen. This occurred just as several more tomato buds began to set on with fruit. At this point in the growing season, things change daily. The hot, sunny weather of the last few days will bring on rapid growth, especially when supplemented by the sprinkler as was the case this morning.
Each day I spend time in my garden listening to the birds chirp and watching my crops come to fruition. I planted a bit late, on May 25, but still in plenty of good time for a season’s worth of growing to pay off. The tomatoes have already begun to ripen and there are some tomato sandwiches in my immediate future.
