I’m always amazed at what a difference a week makes in July. When I left, the tomatoes barely had flower buds on them, and now, now they look like this
The weather right now is also helping our plants just leap out of the ground–it’s hot, hot, hot, and humid, meaning lots of heat and sun during the day, and good old fashion rains at night. I just finished watering the whole kitchen garden and then some, I’m hoping to see some massive progress with these tomatoes and beans over the next few weeks. There doesn’t seem to be the blossom rot that there was last year (knockonwood!), so heres to hoping that adding all those egg shells to the soil when we first dug up the kitchen garden helped to give all these plants the calcium that they needed.
In other gardening news, the flowers are just popping out front, and I’m really pleased how everything is finally starting to fill in and look. I’m really proud of how all of our hard work is starting to pay off, and I hope the neighbors are happier now that things are looking better.
As JGL and I both dive head first into work this week, I know we’re excited to get some time together this weekend. Aaand a certain husband promised a trip to the farmers market after WW on Saturday…get excited!
