Naturally, nature does not stop its work while we take a break from ours. While away in California, our little garden had quite a growth spurt. It may have had something to do with the insane heatwave that hogged onto this region for most of last week. Hubby and I did our best to reign in the unruly tomato plants and pick the first few tomato fruits along with the remainder of the peas and a few leaves of basil. Not huge, but the harvest was plenty for us and satisfying because it was ours.
The tomato plants are taller than I am and may even tower over hubby. They must be reaching for sunlight.
There are more to come. I just hope that they don’t encounter the same fate as this one:
It is important that everyone helps. Regardless of the results.
