I spent much of July discouraging the tomatoes by plucking the blossoms as I watered and weeded. I wanted the plants to get taller and stronger before they had to support heavy tomatoes. Then we had a dry stretch followed by a cool stretch. Therefore, not much ripened.
Last night I did what teachers do as we’re facing the first full week of teaching: I worked on getting my home in order. In this case, I picked what I could and looked longingly at what I couldn’t. Here’s a taste.
And the tomatoes – the potential tomatoes.
For other harvests, go to Daphne’s Dandelions for Harvest Monday. Meanwhile, I’ll be at my desk and in meetings and setting up a book fair for tomorrow – tomorrow!? Where did the time go?
