Summertime gardens are outstanding! I’m currently in NYC dreaming of my garden and 70 degree weather — honestly, the temperature is unbearable (though the incredible restaurants are making up for the thick, wet heat). I snapped a few photos just before I left on my trip to capture what’s currently happening in veggie land. The year’s hard work is sweetly rewarded with a non-stop conveyor belt of produce. I’m still waiting for my first planting of tomatoes to ripen, but I continue to plant more to ensure a steady stream of those juicy treats all the way into fall.
Artichoke... um aren't doing very well. Next year I'm going to plant Globe artichokes in their place.
Cantaloupe...I hope it makes it, it doesn't look so hot.
Sea Scape Strawberries
Early Girl tomatoes
In addition to my original tomato plants, I added three new varieties this year. At the farmers market these specific plants were recommended for our coastal area…keeping my fingers crossed.
Stupice -- reminds of something an Italian grandmother would call a delinquent child
