Things around here are having a growth spurt due to all the rain we’ve been getting. Hardly a day goes by that we don’t get at least one cloudburst. The dogs don’t like it much because it means less time outdoors and some days without their run in the field. Other things are thriving under the delicious drizzle.
Like what, you say?
Well, like my tomato garden on the back deck and new flowers I planted. See?
The tomato plant farthest away has 5-6 tomatoes on it now and it’s a Whopper, so they’ll be “sandwich slicers.” The little one next to it is a Patio tomato and has nearly a dozen fruits already. They’re smallish (4-6 oz.) and are delicious. I still have two varieties I haven’t potted yet, but the one closest to the camera is a Supersweet 100, which yields tons of dime sized cherry tomatoes.
I can hardly wait to start serving them up in delicious tomato salads and BLT’s and roasted with zucchini!
