Now I'm totally jealous instead of sorta jealous....but, the Lillie's bloomed and out in the back garden, the scent is sweet spicy and so, so fine!
You know what's gonna happen:everything at once, like every danged year!

jocoyn That is great on the tomatoes.......mine are just coming in and I realize I should have planted more but did a test between types. The Roma's are wnning for productivity for canning...and even the volunteer Roma is going gangbusters, .but only 2-3 are ready a day on my single bush .....not sure how to deal with that for putting them up. Next year enough Roma will go in to get batches for canning every few days....

We have cukes coming out of our ears and everyone has had all the pickles they want so I have started giving them away. We found "cukezilla" on a vine we missed and it is a picking cuke about 1 foot long so we are going to let it grow and see how big it gets.

My lettuce is bitter . I have discovered fresh organic okra is actually quite good.

Just ate my first super sweet 100 off of the vine. Need a more robust cherry plant but it sure was good. The flavors of everything are amazing...even compared to organic at the store.

First off, I'm sorta jealous
are you canning?
I've picked 4 pickles. Have to supplement from the farmers market so I can start pickling (after I find that dang recipe that I loved)
I have several small green tomatoes
We are still about 2 weeks or more behind. My lillies are usually in bloom by 2nd week of July, and they might bloom this week.
However, I'm still getting sweet lettuce!

jocoyn pickleworms.
Gaaaaaaaaah these things are wicked.

I have very carefully sprayed spinosad. I did just get my BT in the mail (I would rather use that). Both are OMRI but spinosad can kill bees within 3 hours of application so they say and I have sprayed at night.......but I am still not cozy with this stuff.

Next year, they are all going in as early as I can do it and I will use some kind of insect screening in the evening (the moths come out at night). everything else, including vine borers, has not been nearly the hassle and devestation that these pickleworms cause.

jocoyn It took a long time for mine to start turning. I just picked my first ones yesterday - once they START turning it goes fast....

The leaves yellow with spots......oh boy........tomatoes can have all kinds of fungi and wilts...........I carefully pick off the bad leaves.

We have a TON of tomatoes, and new ones sprouting daily. However, none of them are ripening. Also, what is it when the leaves turn a little yellow with brown spots?

Ellimaybel I saw this photo floating around facebook and I would love to do something like this when I own a house. Anyone have any ideas how????? I love the idea.

jocoyn I got my garden in late so I have had one tomato and a bunch on the plants ripening.
Right now the ones on the first Roma plant are starting to ripen.
