We've now harvested about 2/3 of the years tomato crop,enjoying some delicious BLTs and caprese (the latter with storebought basil,. grrr)
The new basil seedlings are up. Mozz you can get at the PC.
I'll probablyhave basil to harvest by the time your termaters turn red.
The beefsteak grew two - 1 fell while green and ripened in teh window sill. I picked the other yesterday. 2 total yellow tomatoes, not a great taste so wont repeat this variety. Finally got the first midsized non-EarlyGirl- cant remember the variety - am axiously awaiting it. Early Girls stunningly consistent in size.
The orange peppers (grown from the leftovers of last Xmas's vegie tray from Costco) are yummy.
Cilantro coming up again, and either thyme or oregano (Darn it, I forot to label the pots).
so Pumpkin's daycare class planted green bean seeds early in the summer and we were presented the seedlings a couple of weeks later. When I was putting in my experimental beds (nothing but weeds growing in that part of the lawn - I piled up some of last fall's leaves for a couple of weeks, then dumped soil on top), we planted the green beans. A few weeks ago I saw a couple of beans - half eaten. Yesterday - there were about 15-20 off the two plants and not yet eaten! Will have them for dinner tonight! The green bean plants are the biggest things in my little plots (suffocated a geranium)...maybe I'll just plant beans there next year...

Altoid "helped" yesterday. She and I were planting her bday present from Gma (marigolds) and Altoid decided to "cultivate" the baby carrot and thyme seedlings. Sigh. She only nuked about 1/5 of each. How to explain which dirt is ok to dig in and which dirt isnt?
She's really good about keeping "her" plants watered. She now has two dusty millers and the 6 new marigolds. Im terrified she'll figure out what that hoe of hers is good for!
