July 11 Ripe Tomatoes and Plot 5 revisited
Record summer for sunshine, and here are some of the first ripe tomatoes - this has to be a first for me - never had a first ripe before July 15 - and that was a Sweet 100 many years ago
Paul Robeson (larger) and Black Prince (smaller); Black Prince was grown from purchased plant
and a quick look at Plot 5 - beans, lettuce, dahlias, cucumbers, garlic chives, alyssum (great mulch and bee plant) ....
have a look at this beautiful red lettuce, going to seed; came in a purchased baby lettuce mix and Sweet Scarlet Dwarf tomato, doing well in Plot 5 - can you spot the large tomato hiding in the foliage
