I visited the garden this morning to check that everything was OK before the heat wave hits. Not looking forward to that. It’s going to be “a real stinkroo” as my friend Martha puts it. In any case, I found lots of green.
The next round of broccoli is coming along nestled in blue green leaves.
Plenty of little green lanterns on the tomatillo plant. I see enchilada sauce and jars of salsa in our future.
Many bell peppers. Big, green and solid!
And look at all the Poblanos! I grew two this year because last year’s made such a poor showing. Now both are laden with their dark green fruit.
And tomatoes! Green tomatoes! These are Amish Paste, I think.
Lots of little, green cherry tomatoes, too.
Even green striped tomatoes. Green on green…
And this big green dude. Yup. Green. More green…
Uh, huh. Yeah, we saw green Amish Paste already…
Enough, already! I want a ripe tomato! Last year I was at least getting a hint of color weeks earlier. What gives? In 2014 I was picking cherry tomatoes on July 10.
Ah! Finally. The lone tomato showing any color. It’s an Opalka, a paste variety and it has many, many green compatriots hanging on the vines. They’d better ripen soon. I’m getting a little tired of green.
