Fruit Set

After a cool wet spring, summer has arrived overnight!! Near record breaking temperatures the last few days - 27 C (81 F) yesterday - for the coast that is hot ......

The container tomatoes will require daily monitoring for moisture with this weather. I try to visit the garden early in the a.m. to ensure my containers have enough water to get through this heat spell . There is no water on site - so it takes a bit of time and effort to get everything adequately watered. Here they are - looking good yesterday. We even finally have some fruit set - the above pic is Sylvan Gaume, a large red heart - first of the container plants to set - and they look like they are going to be big ones!!
