This cherry variety is my first tomato of the season. The photo was taken a few days ago, and Wan just picked it this morning. My friends in North Carolina are hooting with laughter.
Of the warm weather crops only my hot chili peppers have become prolific.
My cukes look great, but they are less than half way up the fence and are only now beginning to flower.
The pole beans look great, too -- but so far not a single flower, let alone a bean.
I will get a ton of produce in a few weeks, but that is small comfort now.... and that is the reason I plant some of the crops I do.
My spinach gave out several weeks ago after three decent crops. It really doesn't like full summer. But we are still harvesting broccoli, snow peas and sugar snap peas every other day. Out frig is jammed and we are stuffing our faces with Swiss chard, kale, and radicchio as well as peas.
The broccoli will continue for the rest of the season, but both types of peas will give out soon. They still producing full blast, but you can see the first stalks beginning to yellow. Soon they will be done, and we will wait two weeks and then plant some more. We can watch them grow while living off green beans, tomatoes and cukes.
