Garden report

I can't say I'm thrilled about the garden's progress right now. Perhaps it's the cooler, rainy summer we've had here, but the tomatoes and peppers are about a month behind in development.

My Early Girl has produced 1 tiny ripe tomato so far; not much going on otherwise. That's usually a very reliable producer. My Roma has finally set a fair amount of fruit, which is growing quickly. The other two are still stuck at the tiny fruit stage.

Same with the peppers ... I have one decent-sized one, and a tiny one. The others just have tiny fruits.

The beans have slowed, too, but are still producing ...

If we have a hot late summer-early fall, things may even out. I'll just have to be patient.

Our Early girl is late producing as well DW. The one that we have gotten the most ripe tomatoes from is a new one for us "StarFire".

I don't think I am going to get many eggplants this year, they are way behind and need hotter weather than what we have been getting.

God bless.
